  1. so sorry to hear about our friend DeWayne but if he was born in 1949 he would have been only 73 cause I was born in 1949 too

  2. Prayers to the Thomas family, Sorry to hear about Dwight passing, I’ve known Dwight as long as i can remember, what a man he was.. If he wasn’t doing something he was about to do something, i remember he loved telling jokes and cut’n up.. I do know he was into many things in his life, a smart man and could do almost anything. I used to live on the hill with my brother and ole Dwight would keep it lively at times. Not all was true but he was a man full of knowledge, he will be missed by those that knew him..

  3. So sorry to hear of Dwight’s passing. He was certainly a character, and will be remembered for a long time. Visited with him last Mule Day. Never really recovered from losing lady friend a few years back.


    I am so sorry to see that “Bootlegger” passed away. I bet he his having a hay day in heaven with all of his
    CB Radio Buddies that are up there with him. I am so sure that he will be missed greatly. I miss the good ole days when I talked with him and my father on the CB Radio all of the time when I was a young child.

    Sorry to hear of his passing Barb and Christopher.
