Being a grade school student was changed for the better for me by the influence of being a student in the 6th grade class of Mr. Dixon. In a somewhat unusual arrangement the class was based in Mather Junior High School -- presently Darien Town Hall -- in a section of the facility which what was called the "Annex". He had a pleasant personality and showed intent on bringing the students up to grade to be passed up to Middlesex Junior High School. Being located in the Annex gave our class an opportunity in the 6th grade to witness, in part, what would be our next level of schooling. Mr. Dixon was my home room teacher and taught my English class. He illustrated interesting events in his own life in story telling from time to time. His military duty in the Pacific theater during World War II and broadcasting for the Stamford based local radio station come to my mind as some of the interesting topics he related to our class. A formidable time in my own personal development, I will never forget the kindness, helpfulness and the enlightening learning experience Mr. Dixon showed me.

Mr. Dixon was my 6th grade teacher at Franklin School, Stamford, probably 1957-58; he was my first male teacher at Franklin, tall man w/ a deep bass voice; taught us well and we were very attentive; on a field trip he took us to the Stamford Advocate to tour the printing facilities (then the hot steaming block of lead was hanging and then formed into the letters by a linotype operator; he also reported for WSTC, 1400 on Saturday; one such cold winter Saturday I recall his voice on radio in the morning reporting the train collision between a freight train/passenger train; due to that broadcast I walked from Woodside Village to Atlantic Street at the RR overpass and observed two Pullman cars which were totally coated with about 2' of ice each due to the firemen pouring water onto them.
I can still hear his booming voice in my memory; a wonderful man to say the least, condolences to his family.

I belatedly learned of the passing of my favorite teacher, Claude Dixon. He was my 6th grade teacher in Franklin School. All the girls had a crush on our handsome teacher. I always remember how he introduced us to the concept of infinity in outer space, worlds beyond our own. He attended my wedding. We lost touch, until he saw the obit for my mom, who with my father, were at times pediatrians for Ken and Jean. He wrote me such a kind letter that helped me so much. Since then we had been in touch through letters and emails. Finally last October he agreed to have me visit him at his home. What a delightful, enriching visit, we even shared our writings, to learn that we both had a special little Tommy in our lives. I will always miss Dick.

Mr. Dixon was the most memorable teacher I ever had. He possessed a special uplifting personality that made me feel that I could accomplish anything. I remember our reading groups and the patience he had with us. He respected us students and we in turn felt great admiration and respect for him. He greatly influenced me and I followed in his footsteps and went to Southern Connecticut State College, now University, and became a high school teacher of Spanish and mathematics.

He will be greatly missed yet greatly celebrated!!
Thank you my six grade teacher from Franklin Elementary School.
