Dewey, never missed any of our football, baseball, and basketball games. His laughter could be felt everywhere and he could light up a room.
We will miss you Sir.
May you be comforted in God's glory and his heavenly light.
Thank You

Well, he was my best friend and his too. There will never be a kind soul on this Earth again. This not to be tacky but he is looking down on us and young again with a big ol beer in his hand!

Dewey and I shared a love for books as well as a love for Sandy. My son appreciated all the Louis LaMor books Dewey located at the thrift stores. He was a real character and will be sadly missed.

“My Love.” That’s always my first thought when Dewey comes to mind, because that’s how he always referred to you, Sandy, my darling, sweet, dear friend. I can barely imagine how devastated you are. Kind and loyal Dewey will be so missed by so many who loved him. He was just a really nice guy. He was lovely to talk to, always so polite, curious, patient, and so generous of heart and his time. I loved him. He was my friend.
And I loved seeing the twinkle in his eyes when he talked about you. More than once, I saw he was still quite smitten with you, and loved you deeply even more so.
My deepest sympathies to you and the family. I’m thinking of you and am there in spirit. Dewey’s passing is such sorrowful news.
I love you dear friend. Hold on.
