Dewey Annon

     Funeral services for Dewey L. Annon, 94, of Caldwell, who died Tuesday, November 24, 1992, at the Caldwell Care Center will be conducted at 10:30 a.m. Friday, November 27, 1992, at the Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.  Reverend Dan St. Clair of Homedale will officiate.  Entombment will follow at the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell, Idaho.
     Mr. Annon was born August 4, 1898, at Palco, Rooks County, Kansas, the son of Frank M. and Mary H. Annon.  At the age of 16 he moved with his family to Lawrence, Nebraska, where he was reared and educated before moving to Caldwell in 1920.  Dewey served in the U.S. Army during WWI.  He married Margaret Arnold on June 28, 1927 at Caldwell, Idaho, where he has resided and worked as a carpenter and builder most of his life.  Dewey and Margaret celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on June 28 of this year.
     Dewey loved to spend time at the cabin on the Middle Fork of the Payette River which he and Margaret built.  They had many friends who enjoyed snowmobiling fishing and spending weekends at the cabin.  He also enjoyed dancing, but his family was always his first priority.
     He was a past commander of the American Legion Post #35 in Caldwell and a past noble grand of the IOOF Lodge #10 Caldwell.
     Survivors include his wife Margaret of Caldwell; a daughter and son-in-law Dewetta and Jim Coon of Yuma, Arizona; a grandson Larry Coon; granddaughter and her husband, Susan and Vic Harwood; great-grandson Tyler Coon and step great-grandchildren William and Tess Harwood, all of Portland.
     He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers and five sisters.
     The family suggests that memorials be given to a favorite charity or flowers.
