DWAINE “Tweet” Lyman BETHERS 

 Dwaine was born on July 9, 1938, in Daniel, Utah to Lyman Henry and Ernestine Jacklin Bethers. They always said he was a very cute little boy. He enjoyed playing with his brothers and had his older Sister Velma to keep them In line. When Dwaine was around 4 the family moved into a new home in Heber City, Utah at 765 South Main Street and the family all grew up in that home. It was where the Panda Express now stands. He was not a great student, but he always had a lot of friends. A teacher once told his mother he could tell him all about what was being taught but he had a hard time writing it down. His Dad loved trucks, so he was always in the trucking industry in some form. Lyman and his sons all hauled coal and sold it for a few years and then went into road construction, which meant not being at home all the time. One year Lyman had a job in Las Vegas and some of the family lived there for one year. Dwaine attended Las Vegas High School his sophomore year before the family went back to Heber where he Graduated from Wasatch High School. After graduation he worked in the trucking industry. His brother Ray had a trucking company and he drove for a while and then worked in the office as a dispatcher. When Ray sold the company to Swift Trucking, Dwaine was taken along as a Dispatcher for them in the Salt Lake office. He married the love of his life, Ethel Bannon, in 1982; later divorced. He gained a Stepson, Daughter-in-law, and granddaughter he stayed close to for life. He made trips to visit them in Okinawa Japan when they were based there and to Florida. On one of his trips to Florida he visited The Villages and fell in love with the area. He spent the winter months there and the summer months in a Cabin above Kamas. The first few summers after he retired, he drove trucks for a couple of days a week to earn golf money so he could play with his friends in Kamas and Heber. He had a good life. At one time he also worked part-time delivering new trucks, mostly to Canada. He saw a lot of the country when he was doing that. He made friends everywhere he went. He has always been a big BYU Football fan and had season tickets to their games for many years. He made two trips to Hawaii to watch the Cougars play. He was talked into leaving Florida and moving out West to be closer to family a few years ago. He bought a home in Pahrump, Nevada and spent the winters there. About 4 or 5 years ago he was out on his morning walk and had a serious stroke. He recovered but has had some health issues since then. A year ago, this past May, Dwaine was making his annual trip to Kamas from Pahrump. When he got to Heber, he stopped in Heber to visit his brother Ray who was at Spring Gardens. He fell as he went in the side door and needed help to get up. Ray called his daughter Chris who in turn called his niece Patti Clyde to come help Dwaine. She has been helping him since that time. His Sisters Velma and brother Ray both passed away in the Fall of 2022. Lorin passed away 5 years ago. His remaining family consists of his sister Ruth, her husband Raymond, and Sister-in-law Marilyn Bethers. As well as many nieces and nephews along with his stepson Rick and LeeAnn Bannon. His family is thankful for the care he has had at Rocky Mountain Care Center, and the friends he made. He was able to get around and visit with other residents and the many people he has known all his life who come by there. He Loved to visit. Dwaine became very ill after watching his beloved Cougars play their last game on Saturday night. He was diagnosed with pancreatitis and after 4 very painful days he passed away at Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, Ut on November 29, 2023
