Corporal Bryon K. Dickson II

Dunmore, PA December 24, 1975 ~ September 12, 2014 Date of Service: September 18, 2014


Corporal Bryon K. Dickson II, 38, Dunmore, died late Friday night at the Pennsylvania State Police Blooming Grove Barracks. He and his wife the former Tiffany Antos had celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary on August 20th.

Born in Minot, North Dakota he was the son of Bryon K. and Darla Shoop Dickson of Falls, PA. Bryon was a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, having earned a B.A. in Administration of Justice and a minor in Sociology. He served his country and state honorably as both a U.S. Marine and as a Pennsylvania State Trooper.  Bryon will forever be remembered as a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend that will be missed more than words can express.

Upon graduation from the Pennsylvania State Police Academy in 2007, Bryon was stationed at Troop N, Fern Ridge, where he was assigned to conduct aggressive patrol operations throughout Monroe and Carbon counties.  Bryon had a sincere passion for DUI enforcement, earning multiple awards from the Pennsylvania DUI Association and numerous State Police commendations.  His passion for removing impaired drivers from our streets led to Bryon completing his Drug Recognition Expert certification, becoming one of the few highly-trained Troopers tasked with identifying drug-impaired drivers.  In July of 2013, Bryon was promoted to Corporal and assigned to Troop K, Philadelphia.  He was subsequently transferred to Troop R, Blooming Grove in June of 2014 where he served as a Patrol Unit Supervisor. 

Also surviving are two young sons, Bryon Keith Dickson III and Adam Robert Dickson, at home, a sister Stacey Hinkley and her husband Mark, Sweet Valley, PA and a brother Brandon Dickson and his wife Candice, Kansas, nieces and nephews Devin, Jacob, and Gabriel Dickson and Joshua and Kaelyn Hinkley. 

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday at 10am in St. Peter’s Cathedral, 315 Wyoming Avenue in Scranton by Pennsylvania State Police Chaplain Rev. Thomas M. Muldowney, V.G. Burial with full honors will take place in the Dunmore Cemetery.

Public visitation will be Wednesday from 3pm-7pm in the Rotunda at Marywood University 2300 Adams Avenue in Scranton.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Cpl. Bryon K. Dickson II Memorial Fund c/o NBT Bank 1230 O’Neill Highway Dunmore, PA 18512.

Tiffany and the entire Dickson Family,

Just want you all to know that there are people all over the country right now that are thinking of you and feeling the sadness over your loss. I am the wife of an Ohio State Trooper and even though we do not know each other, it is true we all share a common bond. My heart goes out to you and I hope you can somehow gather the strength to go on for your young sons. I too have a young son and I so very much ache for their loss as well. You may not know all the wives of State Troopers out there, but we are here, we are thinking of you and we are with you. Take Care.

Keep your family close and use each others love and compassion to help ease your pain and sadness. Smiles and memories will be with you always. Thank you Bryon for your service to our country and communities. May you rest in peace...

Dear Mrs. Dickson,

I am not sure, but I believe your husband was nice to me, after I had a bit of trouble with a bad tenant.
I cried when I read about all of this today.
I am so sorry, so very sorry for your loss, please know that you will remain, and are, in my prayers.
I will pray for comfort for all involved.
I will pray that the Lord ministers to you through all of those who knew and loved your husband.
Please know that you are being thought of and cared for, and will remain so, as I am sure that God is watching out for you madam.
Please take care, and know that you are in the hearts and prayers of many tonight.

God bless you and keep you

In Jesus name I pray for your divine protection as well as all of the other troopers out there.

God love you all.

Warm Regards and deepest condolences
