Dwight was an animal lover, especially dogs and horses. He enjoyed spending time in the woods hanging out with his many hunting buddies telling stories, over and over. He spent a lot of his time riding around in the woods with his wife and the dog in his old Jeep, when he wasn't working on it. He loved being on the water and boating on the St. Johns River.
Dwight was loved deeply by his many friends and family and will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He was a true friend and would always lend a hand to anyone in need. He kept busy, wouldn't sit still and was always on the go.
