Dwight was a great friend that we didn't get to see often enough. He will always be fixed in my mind as a young sailor on the USS Dace with a smile on his face and a quick laugh. A great guy who will be sorely missed.

Courage, fierce work ethic, honesty, intelligence, sense of humor, love of music, loyalty to family and friends, duty to family, friends and country, innate civility, politeness and concern for other's feelings------these are just some of the characteristics of this great guy, a guy who I looked up to in so many ways. I was lucky that I got to know him and call him my friend. He was one of the best guys I know, or will ever know.
