Dwight Diver Judy, 70, passed away March 13, 2019. Born in Chanute, KS, on September 19, 1948, and raised in Hays, KS, he moved his wife and family to Clear Lake Forest in 1985. He and his wife had been residents of League City, TX, for the past 18 years. He retired in 2012 from American National Insurance Company of Galveston after 26 years. He was a member of St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church in Nassau Bay for 33 years, where he served on its school board and helped kick off the tradition of a BBQ lunch at the annual church festival.

Loving husband, father and Granddad and loyal friend, Dwight enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and traveling with family and friends. An avid golfer, he was a long-time member of South Shore Harbor Country Club.  He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and cooking elaborate and delicious meals for family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lee and Charlotte Judy, and brother, David.

A memorial service will be held at St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church in Nassau Bay on Saturday, March 23rd at 2:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to the 100 Club of Houston or St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church: Gifts and Memorials Fund.


  1. Carolyn and family,

    We shared many great times traveling and business events. Dwight was always actively setting dinners and events to keep us all entertained. A couple of our favorites was a trip to Rockport and to the wine country with a trip down Pacific Coast Highway. Our Christmas lunches with Ray, Kathy, Jim and Susan were special to me also. Wishing peace for you in the coming days. Your family is in my prayers.

  4. Dwight was a special friend. He was very instrumental in helping me in our credit insurance business with American National. We also became very good friends and traveled with him and Carolyn to Argentina, Costa Rica, Scotland , and Ireland. Dwight made all the arrangements. He was a pro at finding great deals on accommodation and places to eat. We hunted and fished many times together and just spent 4 days 3 weeks ago making sausage on a friends ranch. We even tried to shoot a nilgai but didn’t have any luck. I am grateful for the time we were together. I will truly miss him.

  8. Carolyn, Megan,Stephen,
    Dwight arranged a Gulf Fishing expedition in 2004 on the ANICO yacht. That remains a really good memory for the select few of us that were in that group (mostly family). Then there were the typical brother-in-law efforts to help Eldon and Mina Ruth in their later years. I’ve seen some early marriage photographs of Dwight, Dick, and myself. Surely there is forgiveness for early fashion statements.
    Dwight was a good man, we’re gonna miss him .

  9. I am eternally gratified that I had the opportunity to visit and stay with you and Dwight that last weekend of February. You both were such good hosts and made my stay so pleasant. It’t been a long and wonderful relationship! Will we ever forget Steven and Allison in the Christmas pageant at St. Thomas!
    My heart goes out to all the Judy family. May Dwight Rest In Peace. The two of you have raised a beautiful family, and it has been my pleasure to know both of you and watch your family grow. Much love to all……,Lois

    Although I know words offer small comfort in your hour of sorrow, Rick and I do wish to express our sincere sympathy to all of you. He loved his family deeply and was such a GOOD husband, father, and granddad. He has also been a dear friend to Rick and me for twenty years and his passing has left a hole in our hearts. But, that is nothing like the family is feeling. You have our deepest sympathy during this difficult time and our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sincerely, Linda (and Rick) Duryea

  25. We have known Dwight for over 47 years, and have been with him on numerous occasions. He has been an important part of the family, and will be missed when we gather in the future. He was a great husband, father, and grandfather. We are aware he was a good friend to many. We also observed him to be more than generous on many occasions. We’ll miss his smile, his laugh, and his sense of humor. We give thanks for his life and the journey he shared with our family.

  26. One always knew when Dwight was in the room with his big hearty laugh and huge smile that always lit up his face. A friend, whom made you feel like you were the most important person in the place while he was speaking to you. And probably one of the firmest handshakes I have ever know a man to have. I know you and Ray Thomason are up there having an “Off Site Meeting” and catching up on good times. Keep the drinks on ice for me fellas….. Love always, Your friend Kim
