Not sure what to say?

Death is something that God did not wanted us to experience and that is why He said what He said at Eccl.3:11. I am sorry for your loss to the family and friends and may He be with you all.

Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

Dwayne, I was in your 1st Grade or 2nd Grade class at Seffner Elementary School. I was allways the shortest kid...so I had a complete understanding of growing up different. You and I had a conversation via text after your marrow transplant. We both agreed at how unimportant money really is in this life. It really has nothing to do with being "successful" or happy. RIP big guy.

Once a Celtic..always a Celtic....

Rest in peace.

To Dwayne Schintzius,
You were a fantastic basketball player for the NBA Celtics. My prayers are with your family. Lisa Weiner

I was just informed of Dwayne's passing! My prayers are with the entire family. I still remember the Brandon Highschool ball club with Tony, Jim Williamson, Brian Wilson, Roy Hartline, Mike Mondsini, John Ferina and more. We will miss the big man!

Many people don't understand why we practice so hard? The end result is what we remember the best!!

God heals all hearts and Dwayne heart was very big as a player and a home town hero. My prayers are with his Family.
