Dwight Hamby Jr.

July 9, 1966 — January 18, 2024

Dwight Hamby Jr., a man known for his kind heart, quick wit, and amiable nature, passed away peacefully on January 18, 2024, in his hometown of Greenville, SC. Born on July 9, 1966, in the same welcoming city, Dwight's life was a testament to the joy of simple pleasures and the strength of family bonds.

Growing up in Greenville, Dwight was the cherished son of Dwight Hamby Sr. from Travelers Rest, SC, and Betty Benson of Greenville, SC. His childhood was filled with the laughter and camaraderie of a large and loving family, including his brothers Gene, Michael, Charles, Kenneth, and Harold McCauley, all of Greenville, along with his sister Dorothy Storey. He is predeceased by his siter Wand Pruitt. Dwight's family was the cornerstone of his life, providing a foundation of love and support that he carried with him through the years.

Dwight's passion for the outdoors was evident to all who knew him. He was an avid fisherman, often found by the water's edge, rod in hand, waiting patiently for the next catch. His love for fishing was more than a hobby; it was a reflection of his appreciation for nature and the quiet moments of reflection it afforded him.

Equally skilled with a pool cue, Dwight was a familiar face in local pool halls, where he forged many friendships over games of skill and friendly competition. His sense of humor and friendly demeanor made him a favorite opponent and a treasured companion. Dwight's ability to light up a room with his funny stories and jokes will be deeply missed by his friends, who considered him part of their extended family.

Dwight's warmth and friendliness extended beyond his immediate circle. He was the kind of person who never met a stranger, treating everyone he encountered with kindness and respect. Those who had the pleasure of knowing Dwight felt the genuine care and attention he extended to each individual, leaving a lasting impression on countless lives.

As we remember Dwight, we celebrate a life lived with joy and generosity. His legacy is one of laughter, camaraderie, and the gentle touch of kindness that he offered so freely. Dwight's spirit will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know him as we hold onto the precious memories he has left behind.

Dwight Hamby Jr.'s life was a beautiful mosaic of the moments shared with family and friends, the peace found in nature, and the countless lives he touched with his kindness. As we say farewell to a man whose presence was a gift to us all, we take solace in knowing that his legacy will live on in the hearts of those he loved and those who loved him in return.

Dwight's absence will be felt deeply by his family, friends, and all who were graced by his friendly smile. Yet, we find comfort in the knowledge that his spirit remains with us, guiding us to find joy in the simple things and to embrace each other with the same warmth and kindness he so effortlessly displayed. Rest in peace, Dwight Hamby Jr.; your memory will forever be a beacon of love and friendship.
