Our condolences to the Cundy family. We have been friends with Dwight (He was always Earl to us) since the mid-60's. Earl and I served together in the US Navy. Over the years, we have remained friends and shared many trips together with too other "Stinger"
buddies. Earl was a special guy, relaxed, funny and a great friend. He will be greatly missed by many. He commented many, many times about his family and how special you were to him

Dwight was a close friend during high school. We then reconnected when we were both living in Lincoln, NE and have stayed in touch since. We had lots of fun together but also shared serious moments. Dwight was very worldly and smart; but more important is the fact he was such a decent and caring person. I will miss him.

Dwight was a beloved member of our Sturgis High School class of 1961. Class members have been having monthly lunches for the past 10 years and Dwight was always there. He hosted us for lunch at his Boulder Canyon home several years ago. He will be greatly missed. I always enjoyed talking politics with him at our lunches.
