I knew Dwight while he worked at 28 Division and always found him to be a solid, good copper. He was always quick to give you a smile and support you with his advice and presence. He was a good man who will be missed by many who worked with him on YRP. My sincere condolences to all of Dwight’s family. God bless. Insp. Rick McCabe (ret). YRP.

I was a brand new rookie police officer and assigned to Dwight's shift. He was one of the first to take me "under his wing" and give me guidance and advise to get me through those early weeks. He became a good friend and although we drifted apart when transferred to different districts, I shall always treasure those early times; both on and off the job.

RIP brother.

Dwight was my coach officer when I first started with YRP. I was privileged to have such a knowledgeable officer to help me start my career. Dwight was gruff on the outside but had a heart of gold. I will always remember his words of wisdom to me and also use many of them to this day. I will always value Dwight's tutelage and friendship. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

Hello Donna and family: So sorry to hear about Dwight's passing, just read it in the local paper. Enjoyed being your neighbors for a few years and friendship. I'm sure he will be missed terribly. Please let me know your number so we can give you a call at a more convenient time.

I had the pleasure of working with and learning from Dwight when I worked out of the Richmond Hill Police Station. He was a senior and respected officer in the station. He always made time to show new officers how things should be done and would go out of his way to make you feel welcome and included on the shift. What I remember most about him was his love for the job, caring attitude and his willingess to help others. He would crack that smile of his, that would always tell you that no matter what situation you were involved in, things were going to work out. He will be missed but will always be remembered by those he helped and worked with. My sincere condolences to his family

Donna and family, So surprised and saddened to see the notice in the paper on June 22, a few days too late to pay my respects in person. Quite a few years have passed since seeing any of you but it sometimes feels like yesterday when I think back on visiting Edna at the cottage on Tiny Beaches Road and seeing you and Dwight there at times too. Good memories from a time in my life that did not provide many of them. I am so sorry to learn of Dwight's passing. I always imagined he would live long and spry. Sincerest condolences.
