Dwight D. Strickland
Dwight DeWayne Strickland, 73, of Yulee passed away Saturday, June 13, 2020 at the Warner Center for Caring.
Mr. Strickland was born in Alma, GA and was a son of the late Major and Dottie Waters Strickland. He was reared in Tifton, GA and later moved to St. Mary�s, GA in the late 1950�s.
He moved to Yulee from St. Mary�s when he began his career with Smurfit � Stone, where he worked as an Electrician and retired after 43 years service.
When not at work, he enjoyed fishing and as he said, �tinkering�. He would work on cars, various electronic devices, appliances and other things around the house. He believed strongly in education, often reminding younger family members, �Education is something nobody can ever take away from you.� At meals or family gatherings, he always said that more cheese or hot sauce would make anything better!
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a daughter, Shelia Barcaro and two brothers, Linton and Major Strickland.
He leaves behind his wife of 18 years, Lilly Charlene Strickland; his daughters, Karen Smith of Jacksonville and Kelly (Jim) Swanson of Hilliard; his step children, Earl Thomas (Susan) Page of Leesburg, GA, Heather Page of Yulee and Jody (Kathy) Austin of Jacksonville; two brothers, Ray Strickland (Betty) and Alton Strickland both of Alma, Georgia.
There are no services planned at this time.
