    One of the few people who still called me Danny. He called me every year on my birthday since I moved here in Florida in 1997. I’ll miss those calls.

    Our sympathy and prayers are with the family at this time of their loss. Dwight and I were friends for more than 50 years. We both worked at the V.A. and retired in the same year. My wife, Wanda and I have stayed in touch through the years and truly have appreciated his friendship.

    Fond memories of Dwight. I was a Veterans Benefits Counselor answering Veterans telephone calls in the telephone unit when Dwight was Section Chief. He was always getting after us when we got so busy, saying “I have calls waiting people!” “You’d better get busy!” And then he would finish with a short “Uh-Huh”.
    A good guy. Sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to family and friends.
