Dwight was very kind. We appreciated having him attend our New Albany church for several years.

My fondest memories of Dwight was our times working together as rangers at Blendon Woods Metropolitan Park. I truly never saw him in a bad mood and enjoyed our conversations.

I knew Mr. Kreischer as COACH. Played basketball for him my Junior Year. Taught me lessons that have followed me through my life.
