    So very sorry for your loss! Dewey was in or around my family for as long as I can remember! He was best friends with my uncle Gilbert until he passed in 1973 and afterwards he was crucial in helping my grandparents deal with their grief! A beloved member of the community and fun parent of childhood best friends Donald and David! He will be missed

    Please know you all are in our prayers. We had not heard of Dewey’s passing until today. Dewey was always so friendly and ready to carry on a conversation with everyone he met. He will surely be missed. He was a great baseball coach. He and Jimmy Holt coached our boys and taught them the fundamentals of the game and always insisted the boys enjoy the game, win or lose. May the Lord surround you with His love, peace and comfort in the days ahead.
