Each of them will carry forward his love for life, his sense of humor, and his undying spirit.

Dewey was preceded in death by his wife: Lois Hatcher; his parents: John and Oma Hatcher; son: Steve Hatcher; granddaughter: Katy Shipman.
An avid outdoorsman, Dewey found joy in the simple pleasures of life. He loved fishing and hunting, often sharing his passion with his family and friends.
