Not sure what to say?

Since I live out of the area, I just learned today of my friend Bob Hixson passing. We went to school together in Corry, and he was my high school idol. I will always remember him as the wonderful person that he was. I wish to express my deepest sympathy to his family.

I just learned this morning that Dr. Hixson had passed away. I had no idea that he was ill. I was led to believe that a nerve in his arm prevented him from practicing dentistry. I am one of the many Alcoa employees who was a patient of his and I held him in such high regard that he also became our family dentist. He had a wonderful sense of humor in his quiet way and like others have said, going to the dentist was not an awful experience when you had Dr. Hixson working on you. Although I...

Mrs. Hixson and Family-

I'm very sorry for you loss of Dr. Hixson. He was a very brave man to battle as hard as he did with such odds. My Dad and Mom always spoke so highly of him. He will be missed by them, and everyone else, so much. My sincere condolences.

Dr. Hixson was the BEST and very difficult to replace.
May you rest in peace dear friend.

I started going to Dr. Hixson soon after moving to Pittsburgh at the insistence of a colleague who bragged that she had the best dentist in the city. Soon after I became a patient, I fully agreed with her. While most of my friends dreaded their dental check-ups, I always told people how much I loved going for my appointments. Dr. Hixson had such great people skills. He was encouraging, funny, and always interested in what was going on in my life. He really motivated me to take care of my...

I was so very sorry to hear that Dr. Hixson passed away. I was a patient of his for many, many years and missed his easy-going manner when he was no longer able to practice. He was a wonderful dentist and I feel lucky to have known him. May he rest in peace.

I was so incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of "Dr. Bob". I first met him at the age of 22 (about 1972) when I had a bad tooth infection, was sitting at work crying, and on the recommendation of my boss, walked the short distance from the Oliver Building to the Park Building to see my bosses "wonderful dentist." His first words were; "Hang on, this is going to hurt a little." He was right, but with his extremely kind and compassionate manner, he made...

I became a patient of his in 1969 and continued until I sadly learned that he had to stop practicing because of illness. In fact, he was my entire family's dentist for years. He was a good man with an easy smile. May he rest in peace.

I am sadden to hear of the passing of Dr. Hixson. He was my dentist 35 years ago. I dreaded going to the dentist but Dr. Hixson had so much work to do in my mouth that I became a regular. Over time I learned to not be afraid and I respected and trusted Dr. Hixson very much. I have never found another dentist that made me feel as safe and confortable as Dr. Hixson did. He was one of the best men and dentist I have ever known I wish him GOD'S Blessing, may he rest in GOD's peace.
