Obituary for Dewey M. Ewing

Dewey M. Ewing
Dewey M. Ewing, 69, of Stratford, CT, beloved husband of Candace L. Ewing, passed away in his sleep early on the morning of March 15th, 2017. Dewey resided in Stratford, CT for more than 40 years, but was born and raised in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He was a star track athlete at Oak Ridge High School (and recent inductee to The Oak Ridge Sports Hall of Fame), and went on to run varsity track at the University of Tennessee, where he graduated with a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering in 1969. Upon graduating from college, Dewey enlisted in the United States Marine Corps reserve unit during the Vietnam War, although he was never called for active duty. After being honorably discharged from the military, Dewey moved to New York to take a sales position with Stauffer Chemical Company. It was there that he met his wife of 43 years. The couple briefly moved to Michigan, where they celebrated the birth of their first child, Brian, before settling in Stratford, CT in 1976. In 1978, their daughter Megan was born, and Dewey & Candy would remain in their family home in Stratford for the duration of his life. Over the years, Dewey’s intensely focused personality would take outlet in a variety of hobbies, which he would always pursue to great lengths. He was a collector and trader of vintage Corvettes (winning best in show at numerous statewide competitions), a fishing enthusiast, and an avid music collector who once briefly operated a mobile DJ company. He also held U.S. design patents on music-related clocks. Later in life, he became a passionate amateur photographer, and won the New Haven Camera Club competition for his photo of the Brooklyn Bridge. His most frequent subjects were his beloved family members, all of whom brought him immeasurable joy. He is survived by his wife Candace, son Brian, daughter-in-law Ashley Van Valkenburgh, daughter Megan, son-in-law Matthew Sewell and five wonderful grandchildren: Caroline, Ryan, Charlotte, Rafa and Niko, mother Juanita and sister Susan. He is predeceased by his father William, his brother John and his sister Victoria.
A private service will be held at the Commerce Hill Funeral Home.
