  • I am so sorry for your loss. Dwight and I went to school together. He was such a nice guy and he made me laugh. I was just thinking about him not long ago. I didn’t know he was still in Mansfield. May you find peace in loving memories.

  • I knew Dwight thru high school….I went to a dance with him and also a government meeting ….I had lost touch with him through the years but never forgot about him.. He will never be forgotten..I wished I could make it to his viewing or funeral but I live too far just know his family will be in my prayers.

  • My deepest heartfelt sympathy to family and friends of Dwight. May Dwight rest peacefully now.

  • Dear Ken and family I know it’s hard to lose your little brother, I remember when I lost my big brother in 1971 my whole family went to Madison. Dwight would have been a sophomore when I was a senior. I really only knew Dwight through the Lodge and Shriners. Especially the Special children’s at Fairhaven Hall this past year in September. My heart goes out you and all of Dwight’s family and friends. I know you never really get over the lose of a loved one. May God Bless you and Keep you all safe and give you comfort in this time of need. So Mote it Be.
    Greg Trail
    Your Brother always.
