Dwight H. Storer, Jr.

May 30th, 2020

Dwight H. Storer, Jr., age 87, a long-time resident of Wilmington, passed away on March 8, 2020.

Dwight was born on March 10, 1932 in Manchester, CT. He grew up in a few areas of Maine and Reading, MA during his younger years. He moved around several times while his father ran the silent movies in theater for work. His fondest memories were in Buckfield, ME where his grandmother had a general store near the train station. Dwight would always reminisce about those days to his Dunkin Donuts friends and family. This is where his love for trains begin.

Dwight served in the Air Force and National Guard.

Dwight was a simple man and very kind to everyone he met. He always woke up early and took his sons to hockey back in the day. He enjoyed working on cars with them as well. In his later years, he spent a lot of time creating airplane models, landscaping and helped to raise his grandson, Dwight the 4th, which he so loved.

Dwight was a devoted father of Robert Storer, Roger Storer, and Dwight H. Storer, III & his wife Dorothy, and grandfather of Bobby Storer and Dwight H. Storer, IV. He was the son of the late Dwight H. and Elizabeth (Ludemann) Storer, brother of the late Evelyn Storer. Dwight, Gramps, or Harry was also very special to his daughter-in-law Linda Storer who survives him and is further survived by his “Dunkins Crew”.

A Graveside Service with Military Honors will take place in the Veterans Section of the Wildwood Cemetery, 233 Middlesex Ave., Wilmington, MA on Friday, June 12th at 11:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Dwight’s memory may be made to Local Heroes, P.O. Box 538, Wilmington, MA 01887.

Arrangements are under the direction of Nichols Funeral Home, Inc., Wilmington, MA.

    Linda and Dwight IV. So sorry to hear of you father-in-law’s and your grandfather’s passing. I know he loved you both dearly. The Dunkin’s Crew has lost another great member, but they all have fond memories. I didn’t know Dwight personally, but all I ever heard from the Dunkin’s Crew was what a great and caring guy he was.
    R.I.P. Dwight
