On Fri­day, April

13, 2018, at 8:35 am at John­ston Willis Hos­pi­tal, Dwayne An­to­nio Seward, Sr. was en­joy­ing a live gui­tar con­cert from his un­cle, Michael Pitt, when he tran­si­tioned to heaven. Dwayne was born on July 9, 1965, in Rich­mond, Vir­ginia. Dwayne was a spe­cial and unique man who had many gifts and tal­ents. He was the old­est of three to Mr. Ge­orge A.

Dwayne’s life con­tin­ues to be re­flected in the lives of those that knew him best; his fam­ily and friends that he grew up with in both West Peters­burg and Peters­burg. Fam­ily will al­ways re­mem­ber his in­fec­tious smile, quick wit, and you never knew what Dwayne would say, how­ever, he would have you in stiches with his “Re­mem­ber When” sto­ries. Friends will con­tinue to dis­cuss and ex­press in de­tail many life chang­ing mo­ments shared with Dwayne for years to come.
