Dwight John Buker lived from September 22, 1954 until September 22, 2013.
Back in 1999 my boyfriend and I needed help moving a green leather couch. We went over to Dau’s trailer for someone to help. Dwight popped out from behind the trailer and offered to help. We paid him $10. Little did he/we know he’d be moving that same couch into our own trailer three years later.
Dwight, the ultimate husband, father, son, brother and friend to all, he was so tired, but God knew enough is enough.
”Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.” – John 11:26.
He had a hug for everyone. He was the man of sorrow, broken hearted. That is how he was moved to love and compassion.
We have a right to weep, but no need to despair. He had pain here, he has no pain there. He had struggles here, but no struggles there. He understood at this very moment he’s at peace in the presence of God.
He anticipated it.
When it was so cold in that trailer we’d put the heating mattress pad on and he’d always say, “I feel like I’m in the warm arms of God.”
Love you forever.
Please come and share his love at his memorial bash on Sunday, Oct. 6 at the New Wine Fellowship. The regular fellowship service starts at 10:30 a.m. Feel free to come join us for the regular services if you can. We know that other churches and pastors cannot be there early, so we will start Dwight’s memorial at 2 p.m.
Please come and share your favorite dish or just be there.
If you have any questions there will be a cooking crew so call Krista at 923-2069 or Debra at 223-3607.
Love you all and can’t wait to see you.
The New Wine Fellowship is located right next to the DMV in the Meadows Business Park. They share the same building.
