    Dewayne did my termite inspections for 20 plus years. Always friendly and we always would chat for a long time when he came by. Hate to see him go.

  • Allen Lee Posted April 4, 2016 9:38 AM

    I always enjoyed our annual visits when Dewayne would check our house. During past few years when he was on reduced activity, I missed his visits, but really hoped the rest would help his health problems. Your family has my deepest sympathy on your loss. We all share your grief over the passing of this nice man.
