Obituary

Dwight was born November 3, 1950 to Bernadine Williams and Henry Hall and was raised by Edd “Papa Jack” Williams and Cordia “mama sweety” Jones both of DeKalb, Texas. He preceded them in death. Dwight was baptized at an early age and attended schools in DeKalb Texas and Kansas City Missouri and graduated a Mighty Cardinal in 1969 Manual High School. Dwight held numerous, lucrative jobs and quickly found his niche as an over the road truck driver with Consolidated Freightways.  After 29 years of service, he retired but continued to expand his horizons by continuing to driver over the road and providing security.

His hobbies included coaching baseball, being an avid gardener, renovator, working on his race cars and motorcycles, travelling, gambling, and being social.  He got practice by working on family and neighborhood cars and was never caught without a roll of silver duct tape which proved to be quite useful! Dwight also was a member of Prudence Lodge #6 F.& A.M., a retired member of the Zodiac Motorcycle Club, an active member of Teamsters Local 41 and he was a member of the Parade Park Homes, Inc. board of directors.

He leaves to cherish his precious memories to his loving wife of 48 years, Carrie, three children; Crystal Marie, Remona (Mona), Dwight Jr. (D.J.) He leaves his Grand Hearts; Walter Jr, Dahnavon,  Kyleigh and Grace and grand pup, Bella and extended family member John Pippen.  Siblings; Gloria Woodruff, Larry Miller, Mike Hall and Nikki Workcuff.  Two aunts Betty Williams and Willie Alice Rentie (in-law).  He also leaves countless; nieces, nephews, cousins, great nieces /nephews, god children, friends and associates to cherish his memory. There was never a Challenge or Task that he wouldn’t face head on with a “balled up fist” and a determined heart. His life left lasting memories in our lives and his passing leaves a huge void in the hearts of many.
