The Hixon Family

U.S. Navy veteran Chris Hixon ran unarmed toward the Marjory Stoneman Douglas freshman building on Feb. 14, 2018 to disarm an active shooter. The school athletic director was shot and killed while attempting to shield students from oncoming bullets. Hixon and 16 other MSD students and faculty members lost their lives in Parkland, Fla. that day. "Chris was an extraordinary person living an ordinary life," said his widow, Debi Hixon. Hixon is survived by Debi and their two sons, Thomas, a Marine Corps Reserve Officer, and Corey, a special-needs young man who appeared regularly with his father at MSD sporting events. Military Makeover is proud to carry out a very special top-to-bottom renovation of the Hollywood, Fla., home that Chris and Debi shared for 28 years.
