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
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.
