Dwain Lester Obituary

Dwain D. Lester age 60 of Kalamazoo, Michigan went home to his Lord and Savior on October 19, 2023. He has been welcomed home by his mother Lola Carol Hall, and his brother Eric Lester.  

Dwain leaves behind his wife of thirty-eight years Pam Lester and their three daughters Heather (Deangelo) Little, Whitney (Ben) Garrod, and Andrea (Jonathan) Morris. He leaves behind four grandchildren who he loved very much, and his beloved dog Boston who loved him unconditionally. Dwain also leaves behind three brothers Jay Harris, Derwin Lester, Danny Lester, and his sister Dede Lester, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Dwain was always funny, witty, and was always a pleasure to be around. He loved to talk to people and could carry on a conversation with anyone. Dwain loved spending time with family and friends, whether it was just time with the immediate family or everyone getting together. He treated everyone like family and would welcome anyone into his home. Dwain would tell great stories and jokes, he loved to make people laugh.

Dwain was a history buff, he enjoyed bringing people together through past times and moments. Over the years he was a huge part of the Cumberland High School Facebook page sharing the history of the lives that passed through the halls of Cumberland High School. Dwain loved to learn and gather information about different times in history, he enjoyed spreading his knowledge to the world about Eastern Kentucky. He was also fascinated with genealogy just like his mom was. Not only did he love to learn about the past but, he also enjoyed finding/collecting old coins and currency from all over the world.

Living in Michigan, Dwain always looked forward to Michigan summers and spending as much time as possible soaking up the rays, swimming, and relaxing at the beach. He loved the beach so much he even enjoyed going out in the cold winter months as well.    

Music was always playing in the Lester household. Dwain could carry a tune and loved to sing. Once the karaoke machine came out you knew so was the king himself Elvis Presley.

Enjoying easy simple moments were some of Dwain’s favorite past times. Sitting outside enjoying a Dr. Pepper, watching a movie with the family, or enjoying a homemade meal with those he was close with.

Dwain will forever be remembered for his kind caring deminer, treating everyone like family, singing to Elvis Presley, telling stories and jokes, always having a Dr. Pepper in hand to wet his whistle, a Cherry ChapStick in his pocket for chapped lips in the cold winter months, and black licorice for a snack.

Dwain will truly be missed by his family, friends, and those who had the pleasure of spending any time with him.
