Dewey Lamon Kennemur was born October 13, 1937, in Midland, Texas, to Ellen Marie Shackelford. He met his best friend and love of his life, Sharon Martin and the two were married in Abilene, Texas on December 17, 1982. Dewey was a loving man and he cherished his family and loved his children and grandchildren dearly; as well as his dogs, which were near and dear to his heart. One of Dewey's favorite activities was taking his family to the Lake; and while he wasn't much of a swimmer, he loved to drive his boat while his family and friends enjoyed tubing and water skiing. Dewey was a very skilled carpenter and owned his own construction business for a time. He was also an avid mechanic and enjoyed working on anything with an engine. One of his favorite hobbies was building and driving dune buggies. Dewey was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
