"fun-loving" definitely describes Uncle Dwight. He always made everyone laugh and we always enjoyed his company. I remember some of those Christmases fondly.
We have many wonderful "Memories" that we shared together and will never be forgotten. You will be missed!
So sorry to see this. I worked for Dwight for many years at Eaton starting in 1985 when he Managed Marketing Communications. I have fond memories of his great sense of humor, and of the constant flow of practical jokes which brought levity to the day. He was a good mentor to me and a good boss. I know he was also very proud of his family, so please take that to heart. All the best to you all at this difficult time.
