Darwin "Dwight" Dye, 76, went to be with his Lord Jesus on Wednesday, May 13, 2020; after a ten-year battle with multiple Myeloma cancer.
Dwight was a very hard worker. He enjoyed his construction-related jobs. From nail-pounder to job superintendent, and playing with his BIG yellow backhoe!
He knew many people and made many friends since moving to Farmington in 1980. He helped a lot of younger men and women by teaching them and being an example on the jobs. He very much enjoyed helping others with their construction related projects. He got a kick out of teasing his granddaughte's friends.
As family, we enjoyed camping in Colorado on weekends throughout the spring, summer, and fall. His chocolate labs Hershey, Kate, Turtle, Jewel and our baby, Bella, were his best friends along with his hunting buddies, Tom Hummell and others.
He enjoyed his fishing trips at Lake Texoma with his brothers; Presley, Harold, and Charles Dye.
He will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife of 39 yearas, Cheryl and granddaughter Natassja, both of the family home; his daughter Shawna Jameson; son; Stephen, granddaughter Emily Dye and grandsons; Matthew McDade, Kamen and Payton Jameson.
Donations can be made to the Myeloma Cancer Society or to the Southwest Cancer Center in Durango, CO. Thank you and God Bless.
