We miss our sweet Dewey so much already. All of us at the Good Shepherd Home loved him so much and will miss his daily jokes and dancing with him. I bet he's dancing all over the floors of Heaven right now. Thank you Shaun and family for sharing Dewey with us here, he will forever hold a piece of our hearts. Prayers and hugs to you all!

My condolences to the Stompro family.
Rest in peace old friend, I worked many days with Dewey in the oilfields around Watford City ND doing "roustabout" work in the early 80's when worked for C&S Oilfield Services.
He was a great hand to work with, we had a good time at work and no one got hurt in that dangerous environment.
See you on the other side, Mike
