    BigD former NLOC owner and Lightning Fest organizer has passed.

    Many of you remember Dwight - aka BigD
    He took over NLOC when it was floundering many years ago.
    He organized LightningFests and loved getting together with Lightning owners and fans.
    A number of years ago he retired to the mountains of NC and left the site to me rather than sell it or shut it down.

    After a long fight with Cancer, he passed away this morning peacefully on his mountain paradise.
    He went out on his own terms.

    He was a fiercely smart, driven, renaissance man who had countless friends on many continentís ...
    He loved cooking for people and sharing his encyclopedic knowledge of cooking and wine

    He will be missed.

    Doug, I was fortunate enough to have met Dwight and Nan. If I recall correctly, Dwight not only put his heart and soul into his love of our trucks and the L community but also $$ out of his own pocket to do LFest. He was truly a good man. May he rest in peace.
