Dwight attended Orchard Park Community Church in Park City, Kansas.  He had a deep faith and love of his Lord and Savior and was a servant to others.  He had patience beyond words and was a positive role model as a husband, father, and grandfather.

He enjoyed Southern gospel music and playing games with his family.  Trips were enjoyable times with his family. He could often be found caring for and keeping up the lawn and family home.  One of Dwight’s greatest joys was being the “daycare” for his granddaughter Abigail.  Family was central to Dwight’s life and happiness, he was a loving Husband, Father, and Grandfather.

Fall was his favorite time of the year and he enjoyed the changing of the colors with the season.

  1. We are so sorry for your loss and will be praying for the Lord’s comfort, grace, strength and wisdom. Ron and Donna Robertson

  2. Much love and many prayers to Sharon, Jason, Christen and Abigail. Dwight was a wonderful man and a very hard working co-worker. Mark enjoyed working with him but loved being a good friend. We are so incredibly sorry. May God wrap each of you in the palm of his hand and guide you and comfort you today and the many days that will follow.

  3. We are praying for each of you. He was such a patient and loving man. Every time he looked at you, Sharon, you could see the love in his eyes. Someday we wil all be reunited in heaven. What a wonderful hope! We love and are praying for each of you!
