I know he will be missed by everyone that knew him but rest in comfort that we will see him again.May God Bless and comfort all of you during this very toug
So sorry for your loss. I know you will miss your dad as a father and also as your friend. I’ve lost both my parents. But I have a means for myself to help with the sense of loss. I go to the cemetery on occasion and speak to them and bring them up to date on the family, work, etc. as if they are there and listening. That makes me feel close to them and lessens the reality of life and death and my grief.
Angie, Matt and family, so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Zoë and I wanted to express our condolences. Your family is in our thoughts and hearts.
I’m sorry for your loss. Much love and prayers for the Dixon family.

I’m sure he was a exceptional role model for you and many others he touched. America will miss him! We are so sorry for your loss and hope you find peace in all he accomplished in his life.

Matt,The one thing that stood out most to me about your dad was his patience. He took time to teach, instruct and mentor me. I appreciated this back during his time as my Battalion Chief. I still value his time he spent with me. Jane and I are saddened about his passing. But we look forward to being reunited with him again in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
