    I enjoyed working with and learning from Dwain, he was my lead at the City of Gresham. He took pride in maintaining the roadways and sharing his knowledge. His kindness and humor will be greatly missed, my deepest sympathies. Sincerely, Rae Sorenson

    We met Dwain at our Logan church. Seemed that we had a little in common, he enjoyed cars and mechanics, we restored antique tractors. We saw him at the Brooks steam-up enjoying riding around on a small tractor. Sorry we were not able to attend the funeral, our sympathies to the family. He will be missed. Lee & Charlene Schweizer
