U.S. Navy veteran Chris Hixon, a 27-year veteran (5 active, 22 reserve) who served in Desert Storm and Desert Shield, sacrificed his life on February 14, 2018, when the Athletic Director ran into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and tried to save the lives of students by disarming an active shooter. Hixon is survived by his wife Debra and their two sons, Thomas and Corey. Chris Hixon received Military Funeral Honors before he was laid to rest at the early age of 49. “He loved being American and serving his country, and he instilled it in his students,” said Debra.
