My deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you find comfort knowing that your dear loved one is safe in the memory of God,who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. (Job 14:14,15)
Dwain always had a way to make me smile! He was good to me and always extended a hand of friendship to me. He was devoted to his religion and his family and UNC!! I will miss seeing him. Until we meet again, my friend!
Dwain graduated with our class at New Hanover High School in 1958. I am part of the reunion committee and was advised that he had died recently. We have an “In Memoriam” book that we try to keep up todate with the class members that we have lost. I will be adding Dwain to our book and deepest condolences from the Class of 1958, NHHS.
