I am so sorry for your loss. May the 'God of all comfort' be with you during this difficult time. I have personally found comfort in the promise at 1 Corinthians 15:26 where it states that very soon 'death will be brought to nothing'. Then, we have the prospect of being reunited with our loved ones right here on Earth (John 5:28,29). I truly hope this brings you comfort and peace. With deepest sympathies, Gwen and family.

Chris - you accomplished so much during your brief time here with us; son, father, husband, teacher, soldier and of course Athletic Director. You touched so many lives in so many ways and we didn't get the chance to thank you. Who knows what future accomplishments you would have earned but you left us while caring for children . Rest easy Chris, we'll miss you.

Dear Chris... The laughter, jokes, and great times at Blanche Ely while you served at Athletic Director will never be forgotten. The road trips to Lakeland, Naples, Delray, and eventually Tallahassee for the football team, you made it possible. To your wife and children, my continued prayers are with you in the weeks and months ahead. Rest in Gods care Chris. You will be missed! AW

My condolences to your family on the loss of Chris Hixon. I knew him as Coach Hixon, from 1993 - 1996 as a student at Ely High School. Our soccer team was in need of a coach my sophomore year. Despite not knowing much about the sport, Chris stepped in and coached our team. He was there for us kids when we needed it. Reading the memorials it sounds like that was the kind of guy he was throughout his career. The world lost a good man that day.
