We met Dion at Men'z Barber Shop. Him and Deb gave my boys the best haircuts, and I enjoy taking them there. He was always so friendly and was always interested in what the kids were doing. Especially sports. He would always have positive things to say and would encourage them to strive for more in whatever position they were playing. He would say, "just do it". There needs to be more positive people in this world like he was. I really appreciated how he would pump up my kids and make them feel good about themselves. We were so saddened to hear of his passing. He has truly left an empty spot and will be missed. We only new him by going into the barber shop for haircuts and its amazing what an impact he made. May your faith in God get you through this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with the
