Dwight began his career as a tool designer at General Motors. He traveled internationally and retired after 30 years of service as an engineer. Dwight enjoyed jazz music and always had a thirst for knowledge, particularly science and history. He loved to travel with his friends and his wife Delsia. He told her early in their relationship “I will fill your passport”, and he kept his promise. Dwight also cherished the friendships and good times shared with the Compatibles Couple Club. Most of all Dwight loved his family. He always made sure others were taken care of first. He never hesitated to take on any role necessary to ensure that his family was cared for and had every opportunity to pursue their dreams and goals. Dwight exemplified the true measure of a man and set an example for others to follow. Dwight wasn't the first to arrive, but he was always the life of the party. His jokes and stories will be missed.
