I first meet Dewey about 45years ago when he come to work at Yamaha. He didn’t know that not only would he be working on motorcycles but also be keeping my Impala SS in the road, Haha
We remain friends over the years and he actually purchased a couple of bikes from me. I loved to hear him play his drums and he was very gifted. I was shocked to learn of his pasting because I had seen him recently and he seemed fine. He had that smile like always. Dewey impacted my life in a positive way and will be missed. My prayers go out to his family and friends. May you Rest In Peace Dewey.

We shared a time that many of us grew and moved beyond. Non left ever the same. We shared dinners, laughs, music and silly stories and I will forever hold those moments, more than mere trinkets, in my heart. As many others, you helped me find my voice in that little wooden music box of yours and I thank you. Rest easy now.

Dewey was a kind soul. Would do anything for you. I met him years ago through our love of music. We kept in touch over the years. I saw him playing in the last band he was a part of, which was "Cuttin Loose" He too came to shows I had in the area. We tried to support one another as musicians.
Both of us being a drummer, we didn't get to perform on stage, but did work together when he ran sound for a band I was in. As well recording at his studio. Dewey had many talents.
I never heard one bad word about him.

We will miss you Dewey...RIP
