A funeral service will be held 2 pm, Sunday, April 18th, 2021 at Sandifer Funeral Home with burial to follow at Chauga Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends, 1:00 pm– 2:00 pm, Sunday, April 18th, 21 prior to the service at Sandifer Funeral Home.


The family would like to thank all the wonderful people who cared for him over the last five months when he suffered so much pain, the Clinton Group Home, the Laurens Hospital, the nursing home at Linley Park in Anderson and last but not least An- Med Medical Center where their care and compassion was shown to both Dewey and his family. So, to the doctors, and the nursing staff please pat yourself on the back and accept this thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your care and love during this time.
