Dewey Lee Braddock was born on August 22, 1932, at Riverton, Louisiana to the union of his parents, Vernie Edward Braddock and Violia Fisher Braddock and he passed from this life on Monday, October 4, 2021, at the Legacy Nursing Facility in Winnsboro following an extended illness.

He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Columbia and loved fishing and gardening. Dewey was known as a prankster and known for his storytelling. He served his country in the United States Air Force with twenty-three years of service, and also served in the United States Army for three years. Dewey loved to help those around him. He loved traveling the world over but absolutely loved New Zealand. He was a “Jack of All Trades” and a “Master of All.” Dewey had a heart of gold.
