Dwight (Whitey ) Chisholm

July 10, 1956 - May 26, 2024

Obituary

Dwight Chisholm raced into life on July 10, 1956 in Edmonton, AB.  He was always on the go as a child and loved all things with wheels.  His mother, Lola, was amazed at his ability to ride his tricycle at full speed down the hallway of their home, brake to a halt before hitting the wall, and then, looking over his shoulder, Dwight would pedal his tricycle just as quickly backwards down the hallway to race again.

 

He lived with his family in Edmonton, Lethbridge and Moose Jaw, SK before moving to a farm outside Millet at age 11.  The family had grown to include a brother Keith and a sister Lisa.  During the Millet years, Dwight and Keith became known to all as Whitey and Hawk. The Chisholm farm hosted some epic parties over the years and although, at the time, Dwight detested the rigid schedule and endless work of a dairy farm, he said throughout his later years that life on the farm was one of the best times of his life.

 

Dwight was also no lover of the schedule and expectations of school although he had many good times at Millet School and Wetaskiwin Composite High School.  He left school to work the Alberta oil rigs that were booming at the time.  He would progress from rig hand to driller and created his own related businesses.

 

Over his years in Millet and Wetaskiwin, Dwight had a succession of motorcycles, companions, apartments and homes.  He put his heart into wherever he was and whoever he was with, making many lifelong friends along the way.  He loved the warm weather and good riding that British Columbia offered and moved to the Hedley area for retirement.

 

Dwight desired a family and began several times to create one.  He was very proud of his two sets of grandchildren, the children of his son Jason and his daughter Jadine, and desired to build a relationship with them in the future.

 

Dwight fought against the COPD and cancer that assailed his health in his retirement years and at the time of his unexpected passing on May 26, 2024 he had been in contact with numerous friends and family – making plans for summer rides and visits.  We will all miss your laugh, Whitey, and your zest for life.  As one person said, Dwight was larger than life!  Ride on, brother.

 

A celebration of life will be held for Dwight at the Millet Agriplex on July 20, 2024 beginning at 2 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Wetaskiwin Animal Clinic or to an animal shelter in your area in remembrance of Dwight’s great love for all animals and especially his beloved pit bulls.
