    Dwight was a very Dear Man and one of The Best Mechanics That I Have Ever Met. He helped me and most all of my family throughout the years. Perhaps he was too good of a mechanic as it was always difficult to get a vehicle back from him as he was just spread too thin. No matter how busy he was, he would always make a way to help a person in need. He Had A Heart Of Gold And Was A Warm And Kind Man. Dwight Blyth Created A Great Deal Of Wealth. I (and many others) Am Far Richer For Having Known Him. This Worlds Loss Is Heavens Gain. Best Regards To His Dear Family. Eddie Wood
