Mr. Dragonette was a incredible person who had a great family focus. I will always remember his passion for football and his coaching of the sport and the hospitality of the Dragonette home. My sincere condolences to the Dragonette family.

Where to start. I remember how friendly the Dragonette family always was, being friends with both Mary Lee and Toni. And how much Mr Dragonette supported the Wilson marching Band. He was always a little mischievous, even teaching my young niece how to roll down the freshly mowed hill and getting grass in her hair and clothes. And my mom, Joyce Hangen, enjoyed being called Secy (with a slight different pronunciation) when both were so involved with the Band Aids. Much love to all.

My sincere condolences to the Dragonette family, I always loved talking with him after a wrestling event or when ever we crossed paths, he always had something positive to say about the job my staff and I were doing. God bless and rest in peace Sir.
My Prayers go out to the Dragonette Family,
Kenny Thomason
