Services were held on Wednesday for Russell F. Dix, former president of the Menifee Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The longtime Wildomar resident, 57, died from multiple myeloma.
The memorial service was held at the Menifee chapel and presided over by Douglas F. Higham, a General Authority with the church. Interment took place at the Wildomar Cemetery.
Dix was CEO of a disposal company, and also oversaw 13 LDS congregations from 2004 to 2011. The congregations stretched across the area in Wildomar, Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Perris, and Canyon Lake.
Dix also served at one point as bishop of the LDS Wildomar Ward.
Survivors include his wife of 35 years, Teresa; five children; 11 grandchildren; one sister; and three brothers.
