Liz, Heather, Kristi, we grieve with you for your loss. The 8200 block of Louisville was a great place to raise a family, and we enjoyed being your neighbors many years ago. Jarrell still ate with Dwayne when he was in the area and thought the BBQ was great along with the proprietor. We will keep you in our prayers.

When I was a student at Hutchinson Junior High, I was a regular lunch customer at Tom & Bingos. One of my friends and I raised rabbits, and Tom Clanton was our mentor and friend. That was in the early 80;s. The lat time I had lunch at Tom and Bingos was a couple of weeks ago. I never have an easy time passing Tom and Bingos, and actually dont remember driving down 34th close to lunch time without stopping. Dwayne was a part of my life as Tom and the Restaurant. They all kinda go together. Ill miss him.

From a 70 yr old lady who lives in Abilene now - I remember the good lunch I had many, many days as a student at J T Hutch. It was a highlight of a tough 3 years of Jr High. Everyone we are in Lubbock - we tried to come by and grab a sandwich. May God comfort the Clanton family.

LizI was on my way out of town to Arizona for a mission trip when I got the news of Dwayne's passing. I am still in shock and saddened. The last conversation he and I had was the day before he went home from the hospital a few weeks ago when my wife Rebecca hospitalized just down hall from his room. We talked about kids, grand kids, and hunting and fishing. We will miss him--especially Bryan as Dwayne really took an interest in him. Our Saturday lunch tradition won't be the same without Dwayne. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God's speed!--Mike, Rebecca, and Bryan Cunningham

I always looked forward to running into Dwayne. I had a building near his, so that was pretty often. Memories of many good conversations & stories. Dwayne was a genuinely nice guy & he will be missed. When I'd tell him he could run for mayor because everyone liked him, that always got a good laugh out of him. Liz, to me it looked like you & Dwayne were meant for each other. On the many days when I came in late & the place was empty, we'd share time together & it was plain to see how comfortable the two of you were together. My heart breaks for you. Sincere condolences for the family.

Liz, I know this is a shock for you, as with us all. Just from your posts on fb, I know he was a devoted husband, father and Pops. I enjoyed viewing pictures of you, Dewayne, girls and the precious grand baby. Such a happy and loving family. He will be missed. I pray God will bring peace and just keep his arms around you and your family as you go through this grieving process. I too, as a young child spent many hours at Tom and Bingo. My father and Dewayne's father were dear friends. I knew who Dewayne was in high school, because he was the best looking guy at Monterey. God Bless you, and know you will be in my prayers.
