    Duey was one of the kindest men I ever worked for.He always tipped the scale toward the employee.He was very generous to his crew and subs.The world could use more people with a heart like his.He helped me out in more ways about how to treat people and go the extra mile.
    I know from how much that he talked about his children and grand children how much he loved them.He was a good man.

    I first meet Mr. Dewey toward the end of 2001 when I wired my first pool for him. but he some became more than a general contractor to me. When we had time we would talk about life in general. His favorite subject was always about his family and you could tell how much he loved all of them, and how important they were to him. he help start the company I have today with advice and referrals. He is and will continue to be missed not only by myself but also by some of his many clients. My dear dear friend you have earned your rest go in peace.

    My heart is very sad of the passing of a great man. It’s not often that you meet a great person like Dewey. I was fortunate enough to have him in my life as a boss, friend and teacher. Dewey always had words of wisdom and knowledge and guidance and I will always treasure that. Working under Dewey was wonderful, not only was he a great boss but it was also on another level with him such as if you needed to talk about things outside of work he listened and always had good advice, when he spoke you listened and if you didn’t it was your loss because it was always true and honest. He spoke of his family often and he also made you feel like family. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. Rest in peace my dear friend and you will also be truly missed.

    I played football with Dewey in 1955 & 1956 at McEwen High School. He was a great team mate and person. We had a good season 7-1-1, but we would not have had it without Dewey and the other players that came with him from Tribble HS.

    Just found out yesterday about my friend Dewey. He built not one but two beautiful pools for my family; the first in 2007 and our current one in 2018. We enjoyed talking about our Army experiences. He talked often of his daughters and grands. He was a good man and I will miss him.
