Dwight raised cattle on the family farm. He also grew watermelons for several years and could be found selling his crop on the same corner that was previously occupied by longtime resident Tom Emery.
He would be there most weekends and would be teased that there were more people out on his corner than at the two local churches. It was guaranteed that you would get a watermelon and one of his “true stories.”
He was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Hazel GB) Williams and Eleanor Vivian (Frank) Buford.
Dwight leaves to cherish his memory his spouse of 45 years, Sandra of the home; daughter Sharon Caldwell of Oklahoma City; his five dear nieces and one nephew; three sisters-in-law; two brothers-in-law; and a host of loved ones to include cousins and dear friends.
