Dwyght Lane Trosper was born on January 15, 2004 in Lander, Wyoming to Allison Ty Trosper and Kayla Claire Medicine Cloud. He was given his Native American name of “Little War Shield” by one of his grandfathers on the Trosper side of the family.  He grew up in the Riverton area and attended school at Wind River as well as Arapahoe. He lived in Wyoming except for a short time he was in Blackfoot, Idaho with his grandfather, Muff.


Dwyght was a member of the Native American Church and practiced his Native American ways which he believed in with his whole being.


His first love was playing basketball, he was a true Laker fan for years. He also loved riding horses, fishing with his father, and playing video games. Above all he loved spending time with his family and companion, Uriah Brannan, whom he cared and loved so much.  He loved his grandmother dearly, he had to know where she was or be with her. She was his security in life. He was a special kind of person and loving to everyone he knew or crossed paths with. He had a special bond with the whole family and especially his little sister, Ana Rose. He was intelligent, always reading and learning about history.


Being the special person he was, he decided to be an organ doner before he passed.  With that choice he saved two lives. The family was grateful that he was so giving and the recipients are also grateful.
