Sending my condolences to the family and sharing a fond memory of Dwight. In our mid 70s Midwestern Nursery days, the late Bob Ed Culver also worked with us, and shared a precious story of this little boy who always walked by Reed Culver Funeral Home carrying a “bag of burgers”. Well, Bob Ed nicknamed him “Hamburger”, and that is what we, Midwestern friends, all called Dwight. He had the sweetest personality, the utmost respect for people, and was always ready to greet people with the friendliest smile. Many of us will fondly remember “Hamburger” for the treasured friend that he was. Prayers for his family and friends.
