In 1989 Dwight was united in marriage to Rosemary Motyl, and together they raised their two children, Darril and Zandra. Dwight adored his family, and spent as much time with them as possible. He also loved entertaining, regularly hosting parties for extended family and friends to attend. 

Dwight worked at Mohasco Corporation until they relocated down south. With the education he gained from Mohasco he started Carpets "R" Affordable, which he owned and operated in Amsterdam, New York for over 35 years. He was a kind and patient businessman, who always was a pleasure to work with.
