Mr. Dwight Bernard Templeton, 58, of Kansas City, Missouri passed away on Monday, June 15, 2020.

Dwight was born June 19, 1961 to George and Charlene Templeton in Portland, Oregon. At the age of eleven he professed his faith and was baptized at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Seattle, Washington.

Dwight spent his early years in the Pacific Northwest. After moving with his parents to the mid-west, he graduated from Raytown South High School in Kansas City, Missouri in 1979. He continued his education and went on to study Sociology and obtained his bachelor’s degree from the Historical Black College of Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida.
After graduation he landed his first job working for the State of Washington as a social services worker and then went on to work for Sky Chef where he worked for several years before becoming disabled.

Dwight was known for his love of political discourse, sports, music, photography and Teriyaki. He was fun loving, loved his family and never left a stranger unmet. He was keenly interested in people and took delight in other’s successes and joys. He was ever the optimist and always looked on the bright side.
