Michael Gene Dewey

January 30, 1955 – December 22, 2021

Michael Gene Dewey passed away on December 22, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents, Lafond and Alva, step-parents, Nancy and John and brother Tom. Mike is survived by his children, Cinthia Cooley, Christopher Dewey, and Jessica Dewey; his blended family children Patrick Knapp, Kimberly Knapp, Kristin Miller, and Britney Garrett; his grandchildren, Taylor Dewey, Christena Dewey, Courtney Cooley, Kyndal Cooley, Brandon Knapp, Aiden Knapp and Catie Knapp; his siblings Vickie, Renee, Debbie and David; as well as numerous nieces and nephews who made his life so special. He was “Uncle Mike,” to many people, always offering support to anyone who needed an extra person added to their family.

Mike was a proud Navy veteran, having served during Vietnam. He spent many years serving other veterans and his community through his work with the ambulance services and outreach centers. He was quick to make friends, having never met a stranger. Mike was devout in his faith, believing that anyone could change if they put their faith in God and tried.

Mike was an avid Cowboys fan and his Sundays were spent watching the pre-game specials, the games themselves, and any post-game news that would prepare him for the following week. He was steadfast in his passion for the team and would consistently tell anyone who listened that this year was “the Cowboys year for the Super Bowl,” even if there was no chance.

Mike will be deeply missed by his family and all who knew him. We take solace knowing that he is residing with our Savior, playing with every pet he has ever cared for, humming to his own tune, sharing movie trivia, and telling everyone about how the Cowboys are the greatest team in the NFL.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
