Dwayne Richard Mendenhall
Dwayne Richard Mendenhall, 42, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 15 years, formerly of Miami, FL, passed away Sunday, October 20, 2019 in Cape Coral. He was born June 25, 1977 in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Dwayne was of the Catholic faith. He was a devoted husband, father, brother and son! He lived life to its fullest and was forever a child at heart! He will be remembered for his infectious smile and laughter, for his eagerness to lend a helping hand, and for his amazing heart. Those who were honored to know him will forever carry him in their hearts.
Growing up he was the life of the party… (and usually the D.J.), he is remembered for his jams and his versatile group. He loved his boys and their bond was indestructible.
He was a business owner and had wonderful customer service and was known for his trustworthiness. He had a vivacious personality and made friends wherever he went.
He loved to fish, hang out with his friends and most of all he treasured his children. He always thought of his family and friends first. He was a family man who served as the head of many households which included his mother and aunt, whom he loved dearly. He also carried an amazingly strong and immense love and admiration for his beautiful sister who was his biggest fan!! His wife and children were always his first concern!
It is with sad hearts that we learned how many lives he truly touched. We would like to thank all our family and friends for their support these last few weeks, although many of us were separated by time and distance, Dwayne was genuinely aware of all the love and support that was offered to him! We believe that this outpouring of love is what helped usher him peacefully home.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 16 years, Rebecca Mendenhall of Cape Coral; loving mother, Victoria Mendenhall of Miami; two loving children, Reagan Mendenhall and Aiden Mendenhall, both of Cape Coral; sister, Anna- Marie Roswald (Raymond) of Ridge Manor, FL; as well as an aunt, Claudette Aboud.
Dwayne was preceded in death by his father, Richard Mendenhall.
