“Intelligent people do not fall in love, we scratch, claw, climb and cry ourselves into real love” Dwight Blackwell, July 23, 2021
Dwight was an intelligent man who loved his wife and family abundantly. He was a man who never met a stranger and gained the respect and love from everyone he met. His love for God and his Christian walk were prominent and he always had an encouraging word for everyone.
He was married to the love of his life, Wanda Faye for almost 60 years. Together they had 3 daughters, 3 granddaughters and 2 great granddaughters.
In his younger years he enjoyed sailing and camping. He was a strong pillar of a man who worked hard at every job. When he was given a task, he would approach it as if it were his purpose in life to complete it above and beyond anyone’s expectations.
Later in life he cherished time spent on his property and he was happiest when surrounded by his family.
He was a member of the Grandview SDA Church and considered them an extension of his family.
He is survived by his wife, Wanda Faye Blackwell, his daughters Sherri Blackwell, Kristi Hance (husband Newman), and Tammi DeLana (husband Robert), granddaughters Jessicah Hillberry, Emily Avery (husband Zeik) and Amelia Christopher, great granddaughters LilyBelle Hillberry & Arizona Avery. He is also survived by his brother Douglas, sister Karan, several nieces, nephews, cousins and a multitude of friends.
