Dwight is a native of Birmingham, Alabama. He graduated from Banks High School in 1979, where he was a member of the fraternity, Delta Epsilon. He then went to work for Compass Bank of Birmingham, Alabama. Compass Bank became BBVA and recently PNC. Altogether, Dwight worked forty years in the banking industry. During that time he graduated with honors with a business degree from Jefferson State Community College. In his younger days, he was a member of the Civil Air Patrol. He is also an Eagle Scout and a member of Tide Pride. Out of the forty two years of his marriage, Dwight probably only missed four home Alabama football games. He absolutely loved college football. Dwight was a very kind person with a great sense of humor. He was often referred to as a gentle giant, being 6'5" in height. He loved all animals and would bring home kittens in need of a good home. Dwight will be missed by all those who were blessed to know him, especially his wife and family. Roll Tide, sweetheart!
