Dewey P. Landry
January 30, 1944 – March 24, 2020
Dewey St. Patrick, a native of Berwick and a proud resident of Ricohoc, was called to his heavenly home on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at home while surrounded by his family and caretakers.
Dewey, known to many as either Old Fart or Dew Dew, was the kind of gentleman who knew everything and was always right. If you wanted something done by Dewey, all you had to do was tell him it couldn't be done and then it was. Dewey proudly served his country in the United States Navy in the Attack Squadron 15 out of Jacksonville, FL. Dewey's home was his paradise. He enjoyed being on his property and watching the sun set over his pond with his son, Howard. If not at his home, he could often be found with his nephew, Ty, helping rebuild his camp in Stephensville. He adored taking his grandbabies out for a ride on his lawnmower. To his grandbabies, Pawpaw was their fix it all. He could do anything and everything.
Dewey leaves to cherish his memory his children, Howard Smith Jr. and his wife, Lisa, Shawn Smith Glorioso and her husband, Chris, Christine Smith, Denny Smith and his wife, Beth Steelman; his grandchildren, Areyel Smith and her fiancé, Gregory Kemp, Areyanna Smith, Derald Smith, Danayré Smith, Mariah Cook and her fiancé, Kurwin Jones, Danny 'Lil' Man' Cook Jr. and his fiancé, Kirsten Cochran, and Destiny 'Baby Girl' Nerger; his great grandchildren, Zanavis Smith, Aubrielle Kemp, Emberly Kemp, Brooklyn Smith, Savanah Smith, Dakota Smith, Evan Smith, Aleah Smith, Kamden Smith, Aydan Jones, Maison Jones, Ryzen Cook, and Christian Cook; his siblings, Sadie Mae Landry Angeron and her husband, Don, Gertrude Landry Lang, Gene Landry and his wife, Barbara, Harold Landry, Barnabas Landry and his wife, Donna, James Landry and his wife, Denise, and Crystal Landry Proctor and her husband, Mike; his caretakers, Deborah Holt, Cyretha Mills, Rachel Rodriguez, and Mrs. Julia; and a host of nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Stephen Landry; his mother, Sadie Landry; his granddaughter, Kandace Smith; and his siblings, Stephen Landry; Floyd Landry, Ray Landry, Elaine Landry Mayon, and Mark Landry.

I wasn't ready for you to leave us. 31 + years wasn't enough time with you. You were such a huge part of our lives here that trying to make it through a day without you is unbearable now. What a dad and grandpa you were to me and baby girl. You were our fix it all and now we have to figure things out without your help. There are no words that really express our thank you for everything you done for us. The way you took care of us will be irreplaceable. She will forever have her memories with you I will assure this throughout my days. There will be tears and there will laughs. The many walks with her to the bus stop in the mornings, the times of me coming home from work a lil late and you were already out there waiting for her to get home. The times on the lawnmower when you customized it to ride her as a baby. These will live on forever. But holding you and seeing you tell us you love us will be dearly missed. We love you pawpaw and we will never forget all the times together. Thank you for many years of being in our daily lives.
