Please accept my late note of condolences in your book of comments. I was very very saddened to hear of Dwighr's passing so young. He was such a sweet guy and wonderful husband to Kathy. They were two peas in a pod. As a father I can only say he has left a beautiful legacy. He always had a kind word. Now there had to be another side to him if he was president of a very prominent construction company so for this, Dwight, my hat is off to your business' side of life! Cherished memories and now your angel watches over you. Take care, Kathy, and we hope to see you at our next reunion. ❤

To the family of Dwight,
One of the best, knew Dwight from working with him as a supplier of rebar, always had a
grin on his face and never a cruel word.
He will be missed!

My deepest sympathy to Kathy and the entire family. I remember Dwight growing up and was amazed by his ability to create beautiful finished carpentry. He was multi talented and will be missed by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Kathy and Family, Just received a text from my dad (Uncle Mick) informing us of Dwight's passing. He was far too young to leave you, and the family. You guys are in our hearts and prayers during this time.
