Dear family and friends of Dwight,
My deepest sympathies to you on the loss of such a wonderful person. As a young faculty member at RACC, I looked to Dwight as an example and role model in our division. Dwight was always kind, supportive, and thoughtful, and I will always remember his pleasant presence in meetings and committees. My heart goes out to you in this time of sadness and memory. I wish you peace and comfort.

Dear Judy and children of Dwight,
I will always remember Dwight as an Instructor who cared deeply for his students. When I started at RACC some 14 years ago, Dwight was on of the first people I met. His class was so vital to the success of the students that as an Academic Advisor I immediately began loading his classes with students. The feedback I received from the students always assured me that Dwight was the go-to person to help students. Whenever I would see him, we would share a laugh or two and talk about how much we both loved the students. He was a kindred spirit when it came to his love and concern for the students.

He will always be remembered by me as the best of what a college professor can be.

May the family find strength and consolation in knowing that he was much loved and revered by this colleagues.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
