Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Long family for their loss. We worked with Dwayne with repairs and issues with our trucks at Leonhardt for a few years and it was always a pleasure. The drivers all enjoyed talking with Dwayne and joking around. His smile and laugh will always be remembered. Rest in peace Dwayne.

To the Long Family, I have only gotten to know Dwayne for the last couple of years and I truly have to say he is one of the most kind, wonderful, and caring person I have ever met. We have lost a wonderful person but heaven has gained an outstanding Angel. I always enjoyed seeing that smile he always wore on his face and his kind conversations. Until I see you again Dwayne I will truly miss you!!! RIP!!!

I am very saddened to hear of Dwaynes passing. I knew dwayne a long time thru Five Star and United Rentals relationship. Dwayne always had time or made time to take care of my repair and service needs and of course talk about motorcycles. I will miss the conversations and Dwaynes sense of humor and great personality. May God Bless His Family And Friends! Rest In Peace My Friend!

I am saddened to hear of Dwayne's passing. Over the years I had the opportunity to interact with him on some chassis issues and that was always a pleasure.Talking with him on the phone was always a treat. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

They say that people won't remember you for what car you drove, the house you lived in or the "things" you owned. They will, however, ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL. Dwayne had a way of making everyone he met feel like they were important to him. I only knew him a few short years, but he showed me kindness beyond measure and helped me when no one else did. Rest in sweet peace, Dwayne. You will be greatly missed by all of us!!

To the Long family. I'm so sorry to hear about you Dad. God must have a job waiting on him to be called home so soon. My Dad was also called home same day as yours. Its very hard for us to understand why. Just remember your never promised tomorrow. Your Dad was a great guy. He helped me find my 1st Harley to buy and anytime I had a problem with it he was there to help. R.I.P. Gone but never forgotten
