Dr. Christopher Robert Dix, DDS, resident of Brookfield, WI, passed away peacefully with his loving wife of 45 years, Dani Ann, by his side on October 9th 2023. He was born on March 5th 1949 to Dr. Christopher Robert Dix, Sr. MD and Evelyn Mary Dix (Possower). Christopher lived a long and fulfilling life and is survived by his wife, Dani Ann Dix (Droegkamp) and their three children: Christopher Dix III, Jonathan Dix, and Alina (Alfredo) Dix-Ricci, and many loving family members and friends.
Christopher earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Marquette University in May 1976 and then one month later he opened his private dental practice in Brookfield, WI. For the past 15 years, Christopher dedicated his career to being a dental professor at Marquette University Dental School. Christopher was also a member of American Association of Dental Oral and Craniofacial Research, American Dental Association, American Dental Education Association, Chicago Dental Society, Milwaukee Odonatological Academy, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, Waukesha County Dental Society, and Wisconsin Dental Association. More recently, Christopher became an Examiner for both Central Regional Dental Service and the Commission on Dental Competency Assessment, and traveled all over the US to help administer the Board Certification Exams to the next generation of dentists.
Since 1995, Christopher and Dani Ann were members of North Lake Yacht Club (NLYC). He served on the NLYC Board of Directors and Facilities Committee. Christopher was also the Commodore of the Club in 2001 and helped to spearhead the project that would ultimately lead to the building of the first ever Clubhouse for the Yacht Club. It was also because of Christopher’s involvement in the Yacht Club that he picked up his love for sport of sailing.
Christopher will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and colleagues.
A private ceremony was held for the family.
