Dwight E. Cummins, 65, formerly of Holtwood, passed away peacefully at his home Saturday, Dec. 25, 2021.
He was the son of the late Col. O.L. and Louise E. Cummins. He was the loving husband of Robin Fry Cummins for 40 years (of bliss).
Surviving, besides his wife, are two sons, Alex, Pompano Beach, Fla., and Damon, Lancaster.
He was preceded in death by his oldest son, Reid, in 2020.
Dwight graduated from Penn State University with degrees in business management and telecommunications. He had been employed as an outside engineer for CTEC of Dallas, and then as an area director and technician for Frontier Communications, Quarryville. He retired in 2016 after 30 years of employment.
He was an avid runner and competed in many road races throughout Luzerne and Lancaster Counties. He also ran in the Boston and Marine Corps Marathons. His favorite race was the Greater Wilkes-Barre Triathlon.
Dwight took great pride in his sons academic and athletic accomplishments. He loved coaching Challenger Baseball and Penn Manor Youth Lacrosse, Soccer and Little League. Dwight would have great fun visiting with family and friends at holiday gatherings, parties and vacationing at the beaches in Maryland, New Jersey and Florida. A true outdoorsman, he also enjoyed taking his family on hikes, kayaking and skiing.
There will be a memorial service for Dwight in the spring.
