Dear Marie and family, please accept our heartfelt condolences. I just learned of George's passing last night. He was an incredible man and we shared a lot of fun times gathering for drinks and cigars in our old neighborhood. You are on our minds and we are wishing you well during this sad time. Please contact us if there is any other service or if you need anything at all. Take care and God bless you all.

Marie and family...... I just learned today of George’s passing and was deeply saddened. He was a unique personality but always a gentleman and true professional both in his State Police career and in his private life. He was one of my mentors who befriended me upon my entrance into the Polygraph Unit. I sincerely appreciated his guidance. He will always be remembered and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
May God bless him and you and his family during this trying time and May he be rewarded with eternal rest and peace.

Dear Dix Family,
Sorry to hear of Sonny passing away! He and his parents meant a lot to my mothers side of the family, my grandparents also lived on Park Ave. They were the Madison Family ,they would talk about your family quite a bit when I was a little kid. I know that after Sonny's parents passed my Uncle Ned would try to stop and see your family when he was in town. I recently had a phone conversation with cousin from california and he was asking me about your Dad, Today I called him with the bad news, once again I am sorry for your lose. MAY HE REST IN PEACE!

Our sincere condolences to the family of George Dix . I had the pleasure of working with him on a few occasions . He was always a true professional who helped many of us during the course of our careers. He was a favorite of my late father who grew up with him and was a member of the Jokers with him. Thank you for your service to both the community and Law enforcement . Rest in peace Sir !
