Dwyn was the true definition of a sports lover, especially when it came to Southern Miss and Ole Miss. He enjoyed going to all his kids and grandkids games and events. Although he had little, Dwyn always had so much to give. He was an extremely selfless man who never met a stranger and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. More than anything, Dwyn loved his family and spent time with them every chance he got. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

In lieu of flowers the Means family asks that donations be made to Today’s Harbor for Children in La Porte.
