Mr. Dix worked in the maintenance department for Classic Envelope in Douglas the past several years. He loved working in his yard, whether it was tending to his garden or cutting wood for the stove.

He was always helping others, either by plowing them out in the winter or helping them with any repairs they needed. A lifetime hockey fan, Win loved the Bruins and was involved in coaching Kasey's youth teams in Burrillville and Auburn. He always looked forward to bird and deer season and being with his hunting buddies.
