Our condolences to Diane and the McCallum family. Our thoughts are with you.
Our connection with the family dates back to Depôt division where we were teaching in the 1970s . Our paths continued to cross throughout our careers and into retirement.

Dianne and family, we are saddened to hear of Dwight's passing. He was very good friend and I will always have very fond memories of the many great experiences we had whether it was playing hockey, working on highway patrol, driver training or just enjoying each other's company. He always had a great attitude towards work and life. He will be missed and we offer our most sincere condolences to you and the family. Philip and Marion

Very sorry to hear of Dwight's passing. I had the opportunity to be on several Advanced Driver Training Courses with him. He was a friendly guy that loved to laugh and always ready to help.

My heartfelt sympathy to Dianne and the whole family. While I knew Dwight for only a short time having served with him on the Commissionaires Ottawa Board of Directors, I found him to be an honest, hard working and very perceptive, individual. Truly he was an Officer and a Gentleman. Linda Colwell

Dear Dianne, Christopher and Kimberley,

So sorry to hear of Dwight’s passing.

We had the privilege of knowing and spending time with you at Depot in the 1970s. We were both Driver Training Instructors. We built our houses together (MacNap construction) and we became neighbours. We babysat Christopher while you were vacationing in Hawaii. We have great memories of those days.

You are in our thoughts and prayers during these difficult times. Our sincere sympathies.
