I have wonderful memories of Dwayne from my childhood. As my Dad's best friend, he spent a lot of time at our house, and every time he came over us kids would cry for a Jeep ride! Oh the fun times we had with "WeeWee"! Enjoy all the fishing and hunting in Heaven!

Dewayne was a great guy and one of the best "color masters" of paint I know!
