I have fond memories of Uncle Eavie….my condolences to Auntie Helen. Wish I could be there to support you. Much love ❤️-Catherine Biron
Sending Love and strength to all. Uncle Evie will be forever remembered as fun,
Loud and full of life. His little life lessons will be cherished by all who have had listened. Hope your having a blast, finally free of all pain this world gave you. Love you forever, forever in our Hearts. P.S. thanks for being our Uncle 💕
Oh Uncle Evie. I can even begin to find the words to describe my heartache. You were always such a huge part of our lives as kids and as we became adults starting our own lives, having our families you were always a strong presence. It was such a joy to have you at the Reunions. Your crazy pranks and jokes will be part of any memories we have of you. We just needed to give you a shout if we had car trouble and you either showed up or could tell us what was wrong. I am so grateful that AI had you in my life. There were some very special moments and some very serious times that you were there for me. Please know you are so very well loved and will be incredibly missed. I hope you're all standing around with Dad and Uncle Gene with the hood up because that is one a memory we all have of you and always talk about. I love you.-Liz Emerson
Miss you like crazy Uncle Eve. I know you’re up there with Grandpa watching us all. Love you both. Give grandma and grandpa Dixon a hug from me. ♥️♥️♥️ Until we meet again-Joanne Dixon
Thank you for 30.5 years of being your little rascal. I'll never forget you falling asleep in your chair and us kids changing the channel, only to have you wake up and be like "HEY I was watching that!" The swimming trips to 9 mile where your son, my dad, took me out to the dock on his back and told me if I wanted to go back to land I had to learn to swim. The years you drove us to watch dad race because we were too young to be in the pits. When I managed to run myself over on the 3 wheeler and you had to take me to emerge.. (Dad told me not to ride the 3 wheeler but Grandma said I could and Grandma out ranks Dad 😂) The lessons you taught us all. You will always be remembered Papa ❤️ and don't you worry about grandma, she's got all of us to help her out.
I still can't believe this is real. You sure showed us all how to be stubborn Dixon's.
Enjoy your journey and be at peace.-Teri-Lynne Dixon
Oh, dear family. I have been thinking about what to say to you all. We sorrow with you. My heart is full as I know, although we haven't kept as close as once we did, how very much we will miss him. I'm sending you love and my sincerest condolences as you get through this very difficult farewell. May you find comfort knowing that he sleeps. No more will he ache or struggle to find relief, no more does he suffer. I'm so sorry for your sadness at his going and wish you all an easing of the grief you must feel. For now it is hard, but I have experienced that the pain of mourning mellows and becomes easier to deal with, even though it never goes away. Some day, your memories will eventually be of only the good times and then, you will smile when you think of him. Dear Helen, Dan, Adrian, and Lee, so much love to you all.-Pam with Aunt Bonnie Davie
Uncle Evie, Heaven not only gained a another angel but a comedian to. He will always be remembered for his kindness, his infectious laugh and biggest smile. My deepest condolences to his children Danny (Carrie), Adrian, Lee, his wife Aunt Helen and all his grandchildren. May you be joined with all your siblings in Heaven. Too Well Loved to ever be Forgotten.-Gail Clarke (Dixon)
