Dwight Dickson, age 86, passed away in his home in Bountiful the evening of April 25, 2016.
Dwight was born in Rupert, Idaho, and raised there until he was drafted in the army. He served as a mechanic and truck driver during the Korean War. After the war, he attended the University of Utah where he graduated as an architect. Dwight worked as an architect in the Salt Lake Valley for many years. He met his wife Irene Furness and they were married April 3, 1965, and later were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They moved to Bountiful and raised their family together for 46 years. Irene passed away in January 2009. Dwight married Lorene Koller in 2012.
Dwight designed many buildings that he was proud of; a church in Vernal, a Masonic Temple, and office building on 7th East in Salt Lake. He loved to read and most evenings he could be found in his recliner with a book. He spent many hours in his carport fixing cars, trailers and motorhomes. He loved to tell stories of how he fixed or solved various problems. He worked hard to provide for his family and was a member of the LDS Church. He held many callings in his ward and served his friends and neighbors. In his retired life, he often went with friends on morning doughnut runs.
Dwight is survived by his children Lisa Grant (Reed) Kaysville; Dennis (Maylyn) West Bountiful Lara (Ken Baker) Flagstaff AZ.; Dan Bountiful; eight grandchildren Trevor, Corrine, and Nicole Grant, Kayla Dickson and her daughter Evie, Jacob, Cambry, Annalyn, and Emily Dickson; and his second wife Lorene Koller.
