Howard and Mary Lampe want to send our condolences to the Winder family.
We would like to be with you at this time but unfortunately we can not get a flight out of Florida because of Hurricane Erma.
Dixon has been a great friend, adviser and trusted legal counsel.
He will always be remembered.
We are so sorry for your loss.

I was fortunate to have had a time practicing law in partnership with Dixon after Fred MacKewn and Ray Leach and I persuaded him to join us. He was a sweet man. I think of him often, now in the front row of the choir of great characters who have gone before me, to give eternal voice to lives well-lived as kind, inquisitive, and gentle men.

Very sad to hear of Dixon's death. We were articling students and junior lawyers together more than forty years ago and had a memorable trip to East Africa together in 1973. My sincere condolences to Linda and Dixon's family.

So sorry to hear of Dixon's passing. He was an excellent ritualist, and well respected as the prelate in the Scottish Rite; he will be missed. May happy memories and the love of family and friends help sustain you during this difficult time.

Although our paths had diverged over the years, EDW was often in my thoughts. The Osgoode years are some of my most memorable and I will always treasure the kindness and generousity of Dix and his family. Deepest condolences to Elaine, Linda and the family. For a guy who survived a lawn tractor, he was a great skier! Regrets that I cannot attend the ceremony.

My heartfelt condolences are extended to the Winder family at this time.
As a long term tenant(1986-2007) of Dixons I would like to state that he was always fair and reasonable in all of the many transactions and dealings I had with him. A top notch gentleman and professional negotiator.The simple fact that he kept the rents low helped me to eventually purchase my own home.Thank you for your kindness ,empathy, humour and generosity. You will be missed and long remembered.

My sincere condolences to the Winder family. I was an Articling Student at MacKewn Winder Leach in 1987-88. I remember assisting Dixon with several of his Estate files. I always appreciated his mentorship, warmth and sense of humour. May he rest in peace.
