A Veteran Tribute

On June 27, 2021, CaringWorks lost one of our most beloved clients, Dwayne “Mohawk” Smith. His brave battle with cancer in recent months was a powerful reminder of the indomitable spirit that he displayed in the face of life’s toughest challenges. With courage and a smile, Dwayne fought the good fight and finished as a hero, faithful to the end.

Despite his large stature, Dwayne was a kind, gentle bear of a man who offered a big smile to everyone he met. But he had a special place in his heart for those suffering from addiction––a battle that he had valiantly fought and overcome in his own life.
