ASHLAND: Easy to please and fun to be around, Dwight Binion had a calming spirit.  Even while battling brain cancer, he kept his quick wit and fun sense of humor.  No longer bound by his earthly body, Dwight W. Binion, 76, of Ashland and formerly of Mansfield passed away at home Tuesday morning, August 14, 2018 with his wife at his side.

A Quality Assurance Inspector for Warren Rupp, Dwight retired after 35 years. Following his retirement he worked for his stepson at Grand Slam Sports for 14 more years.

Creative, Dwight enjoyed woodworking and painting.  He’d build miniature furniture, and painted oil paintings.  Dwight enjoyed fishing as well.

Dwight loved to travel especially taking day trips and weekend trips throughout Ohio and the surrounding states.  Some of Dwight’s best memories were with his stepson Troy in Las Vegas.

He was a past member of AmVet’s Post #26, American Legion Post #16, and the VFW.

Described as having a heart of gold, Dwight was selfless, positive, and a delight to be around.
