New DSNY Garage Dedicated To Stephen Dixon
On Wednesday, the New York City Department of Sanitation said thank you for his nearly 20 years of service by renaming the new Queens East 14 sanitation garage in his memory.
The garage, located at Beach 51 Street and Almeda Avenue, played host to a ceremony and remarks by DSNY commissioner John Doherty, and co-workers and family of Dixon, who was 61 when he died.
The ceremony concluded with the official dedication to Dixon with an unveiling of a commemorative plaque and outdoor signage bearing his name.
Many in attendance recalled how Dixon was a caring and hardworking co-worker, husband, father and grandfather.
