Dwight Coursey, beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, filled these roles with love and joy. His kindness and caring will be greatly missed. Dwight was the best friend and supporter to his wife of 35 years, Gayle Joseph. He adored his children, their spouses and grandchildren. His enjoyment was reading, puttering around the house, and meeting with friends. In his earlier days, he was a champion bass fisherman and boating enthusiast. In recent years, he enjoyed membership in the Lake Pontchartrain Sail & Power Squadron and socializing with fellow members. Dwight was a man of faith and treasured his time with his church family at Berean Ministries. In 1959, he graduated from Istrouma High School and then attended LSU. Most of Dwight's career was in the high tech industry. He was a regional manager for the Southwest for Caere Corporation when bar code and OCR systems were first introduced. Dwight received several prestigious awards for being Caere's top salesman. He continued in the field with other companies servicing banking clientele. He was the owner of Coursey's Fish Bowl and volunteered for the Buckskin Bill childrens' TV show.
