It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Barry Alexander Dixon, in his 63rd year, after a courageous battle with cancer, at the Brantford General Hospital, on October 5, 2020. Born on November 1, 1957 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Beloved husband of Cathy for over 35 years. Much loved father of Kaytlyn and Christopher (Bozana). Cherished brother of Cheryl Hunt (Greg) and Tim. Predeceased by parents George and Caroline, and brothers Jim, George “Bo”, and Tery. Also survived by Carole and Charles Schulties, Grant and Elaine Hunchuk, Jim Hunchuk (Nikki), Dean and Jen Hunchuk, Chera Hunchuk (Scott), and Joyce Dixon.

Hi ¢athy Kaytlyn and Chris,

We are so sorry for your loss. I remember hiring and working with Barry in his earlier days at Tridon. We had fun, some experiences I will never forget and some I have forgotten because I could not remember a thing the next morning. The one thing I will always remember was Barry's dedication and desire to succeed. Barry was a great team mate and friend. My thoughts are with you Cathy, Kaytlyn and Christopher.

Ray & Terry Lukat

Thanks so much. Barry had great memories of the time you worked together. He thought of you too as a good friend, and valued that. He enjoyed working but also liked to have fun. Even during his illness, he could still make us laugh. It's nice to hear from you. We are thinking of you and your family, as you are thinking of us. Cathy, Kaytlyn and Christopher

I was deeply saddened to hear of Barry's passing. I worked with Barry at Belron Canada, where he headed sales, and I was the CEO. Barry always wore a big smile, and I always appreciated his quick wit. When he joined Belron Canada, he quickly became an integral part of the business's culture and helped grow the company, and I greatly valued his talent, advice, and counsel. Barry was always fun to be around. He will be greatly missed by those who lives he touched—my condolences to his family. Rest in peace, my friend.

Cathy Dixon Posted at 10:44pm

Thank you David. He enjoyed working with you too, and at Belron Canada. He did like to have fun, but also liked to work and was very conscientious. We appreciate your kind words. Cathy, Kaytlyn and Christopher

Dear Cathy and family....The service for Barry was first rate...He would definitely have given it a "thumbs up" !
I first met Barry when he was selling Tridon wiper blades and I was responsible for this product line at
Ford Motor Company....From that meeting forward, Barry and I bonded like brothers...Over the years, we would attend NASCAR races, tour whiskey factories, golf a ton, buy and sell collector cars for awhile, attend automotive flea markets, fishing events on Lake Erie, Brantford karaoke nights, bbq's of course, Nashville tours, wine making adventures and the "Ship High In Transit" vending experiences in Barrie to name a few....And from our initial meeting, this led to a friendship of both our families...
We will forever miss you Barry....David & Donna Hyslop

Thank you. You two did have a lot of fun times, as well as our family visits over the years. It was a long and interesting friendship between you, with a lot of laughs for all of us along the way. We have so many good memories from our years together. Wow! The stories we could tell if we got started! It was really good to see you yesterday. Cathy, Kayte and Chris

Thank you so much. Very true sentiment. We are remembering the good times. Even in illness he could still make us laugh. Hope all is well with you. Cathy, Kaytlyn and Chris

I feel very blessed to have had Barry as a nephew! He was a devoted and loving husband to my niece, Cathy. He was also a doting and loving father to Katye and Christopher. Barry had an awesome sense of humour which he used to make those around him feel comfortable and make them smile! Those who met him soon became his friends. He treated his family and friends alike with caring and love. His dedicated emloyees were treated like family!

Barry was also an awesome tour guide! I shall never forget a week long trip to Las Vegas where Cathy and Barry were our hosts: They treated us like royalty! The walking tour of the strip was fantastic! Highlights were: the pirate fight in front of Treasure Island where we were staying, dancing light show at the Bellagio , a supper at Wolfgang Puck's famous restaurant and watching the gondolas at the Venice. Loved Madame Tussaude's wax museum! Hallowe'en night in costume on Fremont Street is unforgettable!

Not only did Barry and Cathy show us the strip, but they also rented a big van and took Carole and I and 2 of their dedicated employees on tours of the surrounding areas. Highlights were: An authentic Mexican supper in a restaurant frequented by the local Mexican- born people, the Painted Desert, and the Hoover Dam.

Thank you for the memories, Barry! I will never forget you! I will always smile when I think of you! Love is eternal!

Cathy Dixon Posted at 12:28am

Thank you so much for your comments. He did like to have fun and loved to smile and be happy. We are glad that he made you smile too! We have lots of good memories of time spent together. Cathy, Kaytlyn and Chris
