I remember Dwight very well. I even remember him from Miss Robinson's Chemistry class at Syms when we were in the 9th grade. And there's some vague memory about me and another guy driving to see a basketball game in Williamsburg. Dwight had just gotten his license you see, and this was the first his father had really let him "drive" anywhere.

I spoke to Dwight for the the last time when we were organizing the last Reunion; I had called to chat him up about coming to the events but he wouldn't commit to attend. I wasn't able to attend Dwight's funeral, but I did make the Visitation.

Whipple, as we so lovingly called him, was a dispatcher out at NASA and worked with my mom for years. He was a very good friend to her and our family and made several trips to see mom and Rus (KHS 1969) in Cape Cod...He is missed and has been 5 years already...he was a kind and loving soul.
