We were so sorry to hear about Harley passing.
I played in an online golf game with Harley for many years.
Many times he had to come over to help me sort out any problems I had with my computer.
Very sorry to hear of Harley’s passing, We were neighbors of Harley for a number of years & I also enjoyed going on Sk Trips to Mt. Trumblant with Harley, Darren & a bunch of folks from Fisons — Good Memories!
So sad to hear of Harley’s passing. I worked with him at Pennwalt which became Fisons for many years. He was the most intelligent person that I’ve ever met and after he repaired my kids Atari to better than new with super long cords, my boys thought he was a Super Hero. RIP sir, you left quite a mark on the people who knew you.
Harley was raised on Filkins Street in the Village of Fairport. We shared the same birthday as our mothers were in the maternity ward together givng us birth on Sept. 10, 1942.. I believe we thought of each other every year on that day and occasionally sent a card or made a phone call. Fairport was a wonderful place to grow up in during those early years. Harley was a constant, a true friend who asked little and gave much. We may not have seen each other much as adults but the memories remain. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
So sorry to hear of Harley’s passing. We worked together through the Pennwalt/Fisons days. Great Guy! Always in a good mood and had a great laugh. We had a good group of friends that did a lot together…. great times, never to be forgotten.
Darren, we will be thinking of you! Again, sorry for your loss. thoughts and prayers to all.
Tina (Fay) and Ed Cregan
We are just learning about Harley Marshall Dixon after having the extreme pleasure of attending and bringing home treasures from the estate sale held this weekend. How much this man will be missed but remembered and honored as we just now learn who this fine neighbor of ours was on the community.
