Dwain Jackson Templeton
Dwain Jackson Templeton, 69 of Burney. We said our final goodbye to Dwain J. Templeton on Sunday March 22, 2020. Our hearts have been broken for many years as we have watched dementia slowly take him from a life he loved. Dwain was born in Greensburg on April 12, 1950 to Gene and Norma (Jackson) Templeton. He was a lifelong farmer and resident of Burney. Farming was not only his occupation but his hobby and what he did with all his spare time. If he was not farming he was finding someone to talk and joke with. Dwain was someone that everyone liked. Dwain had many lifelong friends and was always making new ones. Dwain married Patricia L. Engleman on December 17th, 1977 in Brown County. She survives, along with his mother, Norma Templeton of Burney; his son, Scott Jackson (Lyndsey) Templeton of Hope; his brothers, Daryl (Karen) Templeton and Don Templeton both of Greensburg; his grandsons, Mack & Knox Templeton of Hope. He was preceded in death by his father, Gene R. Templeton. Dwain lived a simple kind of life. He loved one woman, adored his son and was the proudest grandfather and most loyal friend. To live a life one loves is to live a successful life. So well done on earth Dwain. You will live on in our hearts forever. The family has made the difficult decision to postpone services because of the current health safety mandate. There will be no calling at this time, instead a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made through the Bass & Gasper Funeral Home to Our Hospice or the Alzheimer's Association. Online condolences may be made to the family at www.bassgasper.com

My condolences go out to this family! I knew Dwain as a neighbor most of my life. Then he was a Resident at the place I worked for, I'll never forget the first day he saw me when I went into work he stopped me and said hey I know you, Joking around with him I said you do? That’s when he joked right back and said yeah I do, but I don’t know if I should tell people I do! This man was a great man who cared so much for his family, on days they couldn’t be with him, he would often bring me his phone and be like can you dial the number for me or hit a certain number . He would call them and most of the time they would pick up, he would sit and talk to them for a while and after he got off ...the phone with them you would see him have tears running down his face. When you go ask him what was wrong he would say I miss my family I want to go home and be with them, ( I would always say if you was to go home I would miss see you ). He often asked me how stuff in Burney was doing. He spoke so much about his two grandsons Mack and Knox, one day he was telling me their names and I said Mack’s name wrong and he was like no, his name is like a Semi and started to make a Noise of a Semi! He loved his family greatly you could tell! He would often joke around with the guys at his lunch table, he made great friends with them! I would see him and ask are you behaving your self today and he would say you know me of course not. There was days where he asked me to help him fill out his menu, and you would think that since he was a farmer he would love his veggies but no not him( he was a picky eater), and I told him that and he joked and said well if you had to eat my wife’s food you’d grow to be picky too, then after words he shhh don’t tell her I said that ! But you could tell he was joking, he was the kind of man who would always be saying a joke and would do anything to try and make you laugh. My heart goes out to this family, I’m sorry for your Loss! I know your husband/ father/ grandpa is watching down on you from heaven . He is back in the tractor 🚜 once again plowing the fields of gold and waiting for the day he can see all of you Again! He will forever be missed by so many, he touched so many people’s Lives # fly high Dwain ( I just want his family to know that he loved you guys so much, so deeply , I have never seen a man who had so much love for his family the way this guy did ).Read more
