During COVID treatment Dewey suffered a stroke and was unable to recover. Those in Dewey’s community remarked at the way he treated patients when he was in their homes. He brought comfort to those in their time of need, even when it was often. Friends and family note “He never met a stranger,” implying he would get to know everyone, and that he “could talk to anyone and would.” He worked a shift the night before becoming ill, and even then the prankster at heart shared laughs with his partner over TikTok videos. Since Dewey “loved what he did,” a scholarship for paramedic students has been established in his memory.
