Dewey Herman Dowless, 78, of Whiteville passed away at his home on Friday, February 4, 2022. He was preceded in death by his parents, Leslie James and Vivian Bradshaw Dowless; wife, Linda Dowless; brothers: Levi Dowless, Shelton Dowless and James Dowless, Jr.; sister, Peggy Lou Dowless Hooks and great-grandson: Colby Dowless.

Dewey adored his wife and family with all his heart. He was dedicated to taking care of his wife, Linda for 23 years after she had a stroke. He loved being outside in the woods timber cruising and farming. His pride was his blueberry patch at his home. Dewey was a very honest and hardworking man and if you received a handshake from him, you felt it. His gentle spirit will be greatly missed.
