Sending my deepest sympathy to all who knew Dewey. He was such a Godly man that I met at least 22 years ago at church. I will always remember the beautiful Christmas play that Mary North put together with her daughter Theresa at church, Dewey was one of the Kings.. Prayers to those who knew him. May God gives your hearts peace in knowing he suffers no more and to be reunited with his loved ones. 💜
