Obituary of Douglas Wayne Dewey

Dewey, Douglas Wayne

August 17, 1947 – July 20, 2022

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Douglas Wayne Dewey on July 20th, 2022, in his 75th year. Son of the late Donald Dewey and Marjorie Devries. Loving husband of Shirley Dewey for 47 years. Proud father of Tamara (predeceased), Teresa, Todd (Carey), Rebecca (Tracey), and proud papa of Matthew, Mikaela, Hailee, and Walter. Cherished brother-in-law, uncle, and cousin.

Doug was curious by nature and an avid lifelong learner, he worked in unique and challenging laboratory settings including Eldorado Nuclear and Mead Johnson as an Instrumentation Specialist. He had a love for electronics which evolved into a passion for computers. He was an excellent pool player, liked to fish, and loved science fiction and the company of cats and dogs. Always eager to talk and visit while enjoying time with family and friends. Fondly remembered by his children as being available anytime to help when needed. The ultimate chip truck connoisseur he took every opportunity to stop for an order of fries, always topped with excessive amounts of ketchup and vinegar, most of which ended up on his shirt. His generosity, kind-heartedness, and distinct sense of humour will be greatly missed.

The family has organized a visitation, which will be held at Christ Church Belleville on Wednesday, July 27th at 11:15 a.m., followed by a Memorial Service at 12:15 p.m. Refreshment to follow the service.

Masks are not mandatory but appreciated.

Donations in his memory can be made to Christ Church Belleville

Cremation arrangements entrusted to Steele Funeral Home, Moira Street Chapel, Belleville (613-968-2273)
