Dwayne Edward Albin, 64 of McHenry, passed away Monday morning in Leakesville, MS. He was the youngest of three children, born May 3, 1956 in Crescent City, CA. Dwayne grew up fishing, with his family owning commercial fishing boats. Maybe you have watched the television show, "Deadliest Catch"? If so, that is what Dwayne did for many years, fishing mainly for dungeness crab on the Bering Sea. After several years of that, Dwayne moved to Louisiana and went into carpentry in construction. He soon ran his own crew, building commercial buildings and larger homes for Jimmy Alsobrook's construction company. Dwayne met Marie while in Texas in 2000 and was immediately smitten. It's as if they each found their soulmate and they have been together since, making their home in Texas for a while before moving to Picayune after Katrina. Dwayne was a skilled carpenter and worked for many years helping folks all over South MS build and rebuild. He is lovingly remembered as a simply "awesome man". He was the type that would do anything for anybody. Dwayne did have a bit of a temper, but it took a bit to get him stirred up, unless it involved his family. He was very protective of his wife, family and those he cared for. A loving husband and father, Dwayne had a great sense of humor and loved to keep those around him laughing as much as possible. He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. He was preceded by his parents, and daughters Dawn and Katie. Left to cherish his memories are: his loving wife Marie; daughters Jenna (Earl) Gill of TX and Carol (Jason) Davis of McHenry, with sons Eddie and Chris McQueary and Lil' Dwayne Albin, all of Louisiana. He leaves a legacy of eight grandchildren, a few nieces, nephews, extended family and lots of friends. Dwayne's finals wishes were to be cremated without any fanfare, which his family is honoring. Trinity Funeral Services honored to assist the family, as they walk through this difficult time. Please keep Marie and the entire Albin family in your thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
