    My heart is heavy today with the passing of Dwaine. The man had a genuine good soul and you could tell it by being around him. I spent time with him as a fellow member of the Northern Lites Snowmobile Club. Always a hard working volunteer and made the job fun with his attitude and laughter. We will miss you, rest in peace.

    My sincere condolences go out to the family of Dwaine Johnson! May God grant you peace and the strength to deal with the difficult days ahead! Dwaine and I were neighbors when we were both growing up west of Cambridge. We both attended the old West Riverside School. My most vivid memory of Dwaine was the old 16 gauge shotgun he once sold to me. Every time I fired it, the whole shotgun would come apart! So if I wanted to get off another shot, I had to put it back together in a hurry! I’ll always remember him fondly! Rest in peace Dwaine! Keith Forsberg
