Dwight Jay Jabs was born on November 29 1958 at Mercy Hospital, Devils Lake, the son of Marvin and Carol (Scott) Jabs.

Dwight attended school in Oberon while working on his family's farm where he developed the mechanical skills that he would refine throughout his life. 

Dwight demonstrated his technical and mechanical abilities, and his knowledge of farming, through local employers including Devils Lake Equipment/Leading Edge Equipment as a combine mechanic for 20 years. Before retiring, he operated heavy equipment for the City of Devils Lake.

Dwight was a great father, grandfather, and husband. Outdoor activities including hunting and fishing were a passion for a large portion of his life. He also enjoyed traveling with his wife and family. 

Leveraging his skills, Dwight provided for his family allowing Patty to stay at home with their sons while they were young and later kept the family thriving while Patty completed her Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Business. He instilled in his sons the value of hard work, and a strong sense of morality. 

Dwight is survived by his wife Patty Jabs; brother Reese (Theresa) Jabs of Eden Prairie, Minnesota; children Scott Jabs of Devils Lake and Matthew Jabs of Fish Hawk, Florida; granddaughter Kassidy Jabs of  Fish Hawk, Florida; niece Holly Jabs (Reese); several aunts, uncles and cousins.
