So sorry for your loss. I first met Elvis playing softball around 1973. Later on we both ended up working for Duke and transferring to Oconee. We had many memories working together and I used to see him at the lake a lot. Elvis was a great guy and surely will be missed. Ronnie Jonas

I, like most all of Dwight's co-workers, knew him as Elvis and had the privilege of working with him at Catawba and Oconee. He always had a smile, handshake, and kind word. He was a pleasure to work with and just talk about "stuff". I know he will be missed dearly by family and friends.
Our prayers are with all who loved him during this difficult time.
