Dwayne went to Highland High School, class of 1982 in Medina, Ohio, and attended Alpena Community College in Alpena, Michigan.

Dwayne finally made his home Alpena, Michigan in 1986 and lived there the remainder of his life.

Dwayne was a smart, kind, and nostalgic man who had many interests in life including, all things car related especially fast muscle cars, collecting matchbox cars, and building models. He was very creative and built amazing bikes, loved whacky packs, and was an avid cook. The original “head banger”, Dwayne loved rock music, especially heavy metal. A life long learner, Dwayne spoke passionately about his many interests, including sci-fi, history, politics. He loved spending time with his family watching football, UFC fights, the show Ancient Aliens, and the Weather Channel. When he had an interest, he voraciously taught himself about it and loved to discuss it. But his favorite subject was that of his children and grandchildren, for whom he was most passionate about. Dwayne had the “gift of gab” and never met a stranger. He had the most infections laugh, and wickedly funny sense of humor, he loved a good party and was always fun to be around. Most importantly though, he was a loving and loyal son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather who gave of his love, generously and freely, always ending his conversations with and “I Love You”. He was loved and will be missed dearly by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Rock on Dwayne!
