Dwight Irvin Suther of Concord, 66, died on January 17, 2021 following a valiant battle with Covid-19. Dwight was the son of the late Gladys C. Suther and Fred W. Suther. He was the nephew of the late Sadie Suther and cousin of the late Donna Bennick.

Dwight is survived by his brother, Daryl W. Suther, his sister-in-law Sheree J. Suther, his niece Kacy M. Suther and her partner Dan Tobal, his great-niece Lucy Isabel Taylor, his nephew Jensen T. Suther and his partner Ksenia Sidorenko, his Uncle Gene Suther, his Aunt Betty Suther and cousin Vickie Suther with whom he had a close friendship. Uncle Jerry and Aunt Linda Bennick, Joel Hasen (along with the late Donna Bennick Hasen) were Dwight's loving cousins who forged a nurturing and lifelong relationship with Dwight which especially sustained him after the death of his parents. And of course there are many loving family members and neighbors who cared deeply about Dwight and visited him through the years, making Dwight feel loved and special.

Dwight was the centerpiece of his family. He was the light of his Mother's life from a young age, and he brought those around him endless joy with his sharp sense of humor and ability to find amusement in all situations. Dwight loved to laugh, talk, give orders, and be right at the center of things. He would sit in the kitchen while meals were prepared, and loved to take long rides in the country with his brother as well as go shopping and out to eat whenever possible.

Dwight's family and friends meant everything to him. He had a thriving social life, a number of regular visitors, and a list of favorite people to whom he would make nightly phone calls. Dwight cherished any opportunity to gather with loved ones. He knew what life was all about. He was adored by his community, including the congregants of New Gilead Reformed Church in Concord, where he was a member. Dwight loved music and would often be moved to tears when listening to the choir sing at church.

Dwight was a long-time resident of Piedmont Residential Development Center (PRDC) in Concord where he was cared for and loved by many wonderful staff, administrators, and fellow residents.

A private internment will be held for Dwight, while a celebration of life service will be planned when the Covid-19 virus abates and family and friends are vaccinated.

In honor of Dwight, and all people who live with severe disabilities, the Suther family has established a memorial fund through Piedmont Residential Development Center for Wilhelm Group Home, P.O. Box 909, Concord, NC 28026.

I will truly miss my friend Dwight. Although we haven’t seen much of each other in the last several years, I will not forget the times we worked together, laughed together, teased each other, and just enjoyed a talk. Those were some great times I will cherish always. I will not forget you my friend.

I would just like to my condolences to your family. Dwight was like my little poppie, he always asked about my day and how my children and grand babies were. He loved to trade favors for a kiss, which was so sweet. I was my pleasure caring him daily. He will be missed dearly. Sending all of you love and hugs. Love y'all, Jane
