Tuesday, March 19, 2019Dear Joan, and family, I was deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Andy. I will always remember him as a kind , intelligent, creative person, full of life, and always with a sense of humour, and I enjoyed our talks about our common interest in art, as well as his willingness to listen to my differing political and social issues to his. I will miss his infectious and sometimes mischievous grin, and have used some of his jokes for decades with others. He has put the light of life in many a soul as well as the ability for others to see the beauty of this world. Rest in peace and happiness Andy.....

Monday, March 18, 2019When I was very active with the Photo Arts Group of Charlotte County, in Punta Gorda, Florida, Andy & Joan Nixon were members. Andy was such a character and could make you laugh at the simplest things. His smile was infectious~!! His talent showed through everything he did~!! I missed them after our photography group disbanded, but I have to admit... I did think of them often~!! RIP Andy~!! Take care Joan and know you and your family are in my prayers.

Sunday, March 17, 2019I want to take this opportunity to say goodbye to my Mother's brother and my Uncle -- Andrew Nixon. I knew him as a gentle mild mannered man with an excellent sense of humor and an infectious laugh. An artist held in high regard , his paintings of the highest quality in both composition and subject matter always amazed and impressed me. One of my vivid memories of Uncle Andy as a artist was watching him paint a land scape behind my parents house of a field and a barn. I was a dull day with a light drizzle of rain but he painted away regardless. The picture took form and color one step at a time as he created what he saw in oils on a piece of canvas. I sat on the back step beside him in the rain hypnotized by is ability to transfer what he saw to a this flat piece of material. His ability always amazed me and impressed me as I previously said but watching the artist at work was ,as I came to understand in later life, a privilege. Although my contact with him in my adult life was limited , I have fond and copious memories of him from my youth. God hold him close to his breast and give him peace. Thank you Uncle Andy for your contribution of the Nixon experience to my life mosaic. RIP - I will miss you but always remember you, Your nephew -------- Kenneth Walton--------------------- At this time of sadness for the Nixon family , my family shares your sadness at this time of personal loss. No one is ever gone as long as they are remembered and Uncle Andy was one of those forever memorable people. --K--

Saturday, March 16, 2019Hi my name is Karen Abi-Jaoude (McCracken). Mr. Nixon was my art teacher at Eastview, Barrie. (In the 70's) I must say I loved my art classes with Mr. Nixon. He inspired me to enjoy painting as a hobby. I have been lucky enough to have one of my paintings in the Vatican and another in Lebanon. My condolences to his family and friends. Mr. Nixon will not be forgotten.....Thank you Sir!
