Dwight Ervin Fargo, 68, of Paw Paw, went home to his Lord and Savior on Friday, October 15, 2021.

Dwight was born in Allegan on December 3, 1952, the son of the late Ervin and Irma (Mutschler) Fargo. He had a great love for his country and proudly served in the Army during the Vietnam War. Following his service, Dwight eventually began working for the City of Allegan, where he dedicated 30 years of service until his retirement. He was not the type to sit around, Dwight was always on the go. Whether it was helping his kids with various projects or taking his boat to Maple Lake to enjoy fishing. He always made time for his grandchildren, he enjoyed playing cards, board games and piecing puzzles together with them. The family was his pride and joy. He loved to play Cribbage with Roxie. Dwight had a strong faith and enjoyed attending Freshwater Church. He also looked forward to Tuesday nights, when he would host his Bible Study group.

Dwight is survived by his wife, Roxie (Ellis) Fargo, son, Jason (Megan) Fargo; daughter, Leslie (Jason) DeDoes; nine grandchildren, Scotty Fargo, JD Fargo, Ella Fargo, Adrian DeDoes, Carson DeDoes, Olivia DeDoes, Jase DeDoes, Charlotte DeDoes and Evelyn DeDoes; sister, Judy Hambley; three sister in laws, Marilyn (Bob) Peck, Onalee (Mike) Milbocker and Jeanie (Kim) Holden; two brother in laws, Butch (Shelly) Ellis and Sam (Brenda) Ellis; along with many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Dwight was preceded in death by his sister, Janet Nelson, his father and mother in law, Al and Ella Ellis, two brother in laws, Art Hambley and John Nelson and his sister and brother in law, Caroline and Gary Joostberns.

There will be a private interment ceremony, officiated by Pastor Troy Gentz, with full military honors at Fort Custer National Cemetery.
