Dwight was a brilliant individual, a fine athlete, and a great friend throughout high school and at the U. He introduced me to spicey food over Christmas break in California in 1971, a great leap for a Scandinavian boy from Minnesota. His unfortunate death was a staggering loss.
Dwight was a great friend during my high school and university days. I enjoyed playing on the basketball team with him. He liked to play practical jokes and was fun to be with. I was very sad when I heard of his passing.
Dwight was probably the most brilliant mind I have ever known in life. He completed the normally 5 year Chemical Engineering Degree at the U of M in 3 years. I also believe he completed Med School in record time. As I attended Calculus classes with him, I thought to myself "I would cut off my right arm if I could have his brain. Because, If I had his brain; I could absolutely figure out how to medically regenerate my right arm."
As a true legacy to Dwight, if you know someone who is suffering from depression, Please reach out to them and listen to their needs.
