  • Memories…. Climbing every tree as high as the branches were strong enough to hold our weight, using Dwane’s pocket knife to carve a “D” and an “S” in nearly every tree…. Damming up the creek, thoroughly convinced that it would make a pond and fish would automatically appear in the water… playing ball, riding (and wrecking) your mini-dirt bike… I can still hear his laughter in my head and see his eyes twinkling with the next idea of what he and I could get in to…. Dwane was my first “best friend” in life and I will always love him.

    Time and distance do not make love less…

  • My heart aches to hear this news. I am sincerely thinking of everyone. This is a huge loss for everyone that knew Dwane. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.
    Dwane was a special person and positively touched so many people’s lives with his representation of giving, love, kindness, and selflessness.

  • All I can say is your baby knows the great unknown. I always find peace in that. No other words that I can say will ease your pain. God bless each one of you that are missing him. Much love!

  • My family and i send are condolences.i only knew Dwayne a few years.but we always talked about the old days racing.and work.wre sorry for your loss.

  • I am deeply saddened to here about Dwane’s passing and praying for his family. Dwane and I were great friends in school. We lost touch after school and were finally able to connect many years later and I really enjoyed our long talks on the phone about all sorts of things. Gods speed my dear friend.

  • I am so sorry to hear of Dwayne’s passing. He was an incredible person to have known. He loved to feed the birds, squirrels and deer in the winter to make sure they didn’t go hungry. He was a big help to me when I needed a craft project cut or hanging blinds for me. He loved to eat and was so appreciative when I would make too much and share with him. An all round great guy who meant a lot to us at Woodside. He will be dearly missed. My prayers are always with you.
