The late Dwight Waller was remembered Tuesday night for his expertise and experience in the field of construction and as a valued resource in the development of many local housing, business and government projects in his role as county building official.
Halifax County Board of Supervisors presented to Waller’s family a framed resolution of commendation memorializing Waller during the regular monthly meeting Tuesday night in Halifax.
The 65-year-old lifelong county resident was employed by the county since September 2002 and served as building official from June 2004 until his death on June 26.
Waller was a member of many professional organizations including the National Organization of Building Officials and the International Association of Electrical Inspectors.
A faithful member of Seven Oaks Baptist Church, Waller actively provided outreach assistance to those in need, the resolution stated.
Waller was “a dedicated son, brother, husband, father and grandfather, who was considered by many to be a valued adviser in the construction community and who was a source of support and solace to his family and friends,” the resolution further stated.
Supervisors extended to Waller’s family their condolences and appreciation for his dedication and faithful service to county citizens and entered the resolution into the minutes of the supervisors meeting “in permanent testimony to Waller’s contributions to the success of Halifax County.”
