"The Greatest Parapro Ever"

"Forget Davy Jones," my friend writes. "I'm bummed over Mr. Dixon, the greatest parapro* ever. He was so good with the kids and he was a singer, getting involved in school musical productions but also busting out spontaneously in the classroom."

Mr. Dixon, you were noticed, and you will be missed.

Here is the obituary:
