Uncle Dwight was always kind, gentle and caring. I remember he always had interesting stories to tell and he started me on stamp collecting, a hobby I still enjoy. May God bless and keep you resting in his peace.

I had the pleasure of working with Dwight at Mcdonnell Douglas for a number of years, he was truly a gentleman, I think the planet is a better place for him having been here. Rest in peace Dwight, and many thanks for your military service.
