Dewayne was an electrician by trade, and he loved his work. In his free time, Dewayne enjoyed fishing, hunting, or any activity that got him outdoors. Dewayne was proud of his barbequing skills, especially his ribs, which may or may not have rivaled that of his brother Tim's. Most of all, Dewayne loved his family and the time spent with them. He will be deeply missed.
