Dwayne was one lovable person. He was always there when you needed him and whatever you needed him for. He would give you the shirt off his back if you asked him. That was just the way he was. He loved to go fishing, and he went every chance he got. He loved his family, and he made sure they were well taken care of at all times. If you needed something, you just needed to ask Dwayne and he either had it or would get it for you.
