Dwight was a great neighbor and friend. Whenever I make up a big pot of soup in the years to come, I will want to share again with him. He was a bright interesting man who cared deeply about his life's work to the end.
He once told me he just always thought he and Pat would go together. Today they are together again, resting in peace.
The feeling of a great loss is shared by many. Deepest sympathy to his family and all who loved him
