Dwight for a time was my supervisor at the U.S. Postal service Merrifield processing and distribution center in Fairfax County Virginia.
He was a good and kind kind man.
Dwight supervised mostly on the “Building Side”, (H.V.A.C.)but would at times work “Automation”. (where I worked as an electronic technician/mechanic on letter, parcel and or sack sorting equipment.)
He was quite versatile and hard working.
I remember one particular winter night when we had a big snow storm hit. I was working automation(T-3), and Dwight (T-1) asked me to help plow snow. He had me operate a small John Deere tractor, that I would load salt and sand into the trucks. He knew when I was beginning to tire. He had me off the tractor, gave me food, hot coffee and rest. I made it home safely that morning, thanks to him.
If there is a heaven, I would like to think that Dwight is up there helping those “lost, stuck or misplaced soles” get to that final address we all want to get delivered to.
He is greatly missed.

I grew up across the street from Dwight on Wayne Street in Arlington, VA. Dwight and Bud Windell were role models for me. Dwight was a hard worker. Usually traveled to WVA every weekend. He loved to tell stories about growing up on the farm in WVA. 10 mile walk to school, up hill both ways. I remember I volunteered to paint the exterior of his parents house, they bought a manufactured home after their home burned down as I recall. Everything came with the house, even the paint. It was June/July. He told me to bring warm clothes it would be cold in the mornings. He told a story about so much snow they had to dig a hole through the roof, to feed the animals. He was right, I needed the jacket, it was cold. I lost touch with Dwight after I moved out of Arlington but Dwight has always been in my thoughts and prayers and he always will be. So sorry for your loss. Michael Kilby
