    A wonderful chap, always remember his book of poems that came out just in time for Christmas, and almost all Needilup had a copy and it bought lots of laughter to us all. Dixie was a wonderful gentleman, thoughts to Lesley, Ross, Dean and Lynda.

    Sincere sympathy to dear Lesley, Ross, Dean, Linda and families. Dixie was one in a million, sincere friend, sense of humour, renowned bush poet, loved to play guitar and sing all night, a hard working farmer and shearer, dedicated racehorse trainer and supporter of Country Racing. A dinkum Aussie, always ready to discuss the state of the nation. A ton with the cricket bat and two on the shearing board. A lifetime of good times and friendship.

    MK, you leave a big gap in our lives. KJ and W.

    From the beginning you believed in my abilities as a Jockey, giving me some wonderful memories to reflect on. You were one of the first trainers who saw potential in women as Jockies and has been an ongoing support to them. Your dry wit, talent for creating a "good story" and your dapper presence at the racers will be greatly missed. You will be in my heart forever. Deepest sympathy to Leslie and family.

Deepest sympathy to Lesley and family. He was the best.
