    I left a message last night and I’m sorry about the loss. I know that it’s none of my business but can I ask what happened to him? Thank you

    I ran around with Dwight a lot in the 1970’s, he was always so nice to us younger guys in the pool hall. I rem the time me, Dwight, Possum Simmons and Brent Austin went to Denton’s tavern in old Shawneetown and closed down the joint. After we went to the little greasy spoon next door and eat Cheeseburgers and chili! We all thru up all the way home to CIR!!! Later he married DeAnn’s first cousin Sharon. Rest in peace “Mad Dog” you were a super cool guy!!!
