Dwight drove trucks for 40 plus years, first for himself and then for several other companies.  Dwight had faith and never met a stranger with all his travels.  He got along with everyone, waving at everyone and calling them friend.  He loved to play cards especially euchre. He loved, drag racing, cars and trucks, anything automotive. He loved action movies, Perry Mason, Andy Griffith and Westerns, especially John Wayne!  He loved to spend time with his grandchildren and greatgrandchildren and made sure they watched Andy Griffith wanting them to share a part of how he grew up and the moral influence on his life.   He was an equal opportunity teaser but especially got a kick out of picking on Willow and Matty, playing wack-a-loon…  Family was a priority for him always.  He was right there when they needed him.
