After having two children a business opportunity moved the family to Peninsula, Ohio in 1968. In 1976 Dewey purchased a plastic manufacturing business, Hudson Extrusions. With many years of hard work, the company thrives as a family business with loyal employees and a commitment to the local community. Dewey always took interest in making the world around him better. Just to name a few ways he served his community: member and chairman of Peninsula Zoning Board, served on Peninsula Village Council, served as Peninsula Village Mayor and President of Boston Northampton Recreation Association and United States Submarine Veterans of WWII-Ohio-N.E.

Dewey loved to travel having visited every state in the United States and some foreign countries: Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, Russia, Finland, China, Canada, New Zealand and the Philippines. Dewey was motivated by what was right and spoke passionately about what he believed in. He got down to business quickly when it was time to be serious, but he was mischievous, and loved to make others laugh. Dewey was beloved by all he met and will be missed.
