Kawliga David Dickenson, age 46 of Robbinsdale, Minnesota had found his wings and place in heaven at his home on Saturday, March  5, 2022 in Bemidji, Minnesota.  He was born on April 18, 1975 in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, the son of David Dickenson and Linda Dickenson.

Kawliga was a hard-working man who enjoyed being a bus driver for the Red Lake School District in his earlier years.  He loved watching movies and interacting with his family at any chance he could.  He always did his best for his family and almost everyday he expressed that he loved everyone, even those who might harbor negative feelings towards him.  Kawliga also loved learning about the hobbies of his family and hearing about them. He loved watching football on Sundays, his favorite team being, to no one’s surprise, the Vikings.  Whenever the opportunity came he also took care of his grandchildren and played with them very often, usually to the dismay of those who lived on the floor below him.  They played for so long he often needed to take breaks in between to catch his breath.

Those greeting him in the spirit world are his parents, siblings and nephew: Linda Dickenson and David Dickenson Sr., Dana Dickenson, David Dickenson Jr., Nicole “Nikki” Dickenson and Aaron Dickenson; as well as many aunts, uncles and grandparents.

He will be remembered by his brothers, children and grandchildren: John Dickenson Sr., Craig Dickenson Sr., Brian Dickenson, Taylor Dickenson, Diamond Dickenson, Dominique Dickenson, Kawliga Dickenson Jr., David Dickenson, Traevon Dickenson, Tavian (June) Dickenson, Levi Dickenson and Jasiah Cortez.

    It was an honor to know Kawliga. He worked for me for 3 years at Red Lake Transit. Always pleasant and courteous to our riders, an asset to our program. He will be remembered as a good man. He goes home far to young. He is missed.
    Rest in Peace, Kawliga.
