For those of us that were fortunate enough to really get to know Dwayne Schintzius he was much more than a professional athlete. He was a kind, generous, humble, considerate, gentle, polite, deeply thoughtful, sensitive, sarcastic, funny, fun loving, and a compassionate individual. It was a privilege and an honor to have him as a friend.
Dwayne was truly blessed in many different ways and I think we who knew him were blessed as well. Ask yourself this question. When will any of us in this lifetime every meet a person like Dwayne again? We'll never be that lucky. But, he will always remain in my heart and I know one day I'll be lucky enough to see him again.
