JEWELL, Dennis R. Beloved husband of Wanda J. Jewell (nee Clements) for 58 years. Loving father of Tammy Jewell and Shelley (Tom) Lalley. Cherished grandfather of Kelsey and Zachary. Dear brother of Gary (Nancy) Jewell and the late Ronald Jewell. Devoted son of the late Earl and Mildred Jewell. Also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Dennis started his drumming career as an adolescent eventually traveling all around the Midwest and southern states playing with the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Wayne Cochran and filling in for Bobby Mackey's band.. As a proud and passionate musician he continued to entertain people playing for a variety of venues, everything from wedding receptions, festivals, to motorcycle club gatherings. He had an eclectic background of musical talent ranging from playing the drums, to playing the trumpet , to singing. He mostly enjoyed classic rock, but did play jazz, doo-wop, and his least favorite country. His favorite past times were grilling and eating a juicy steak with a baked potato, jam cake, strawberry shortcake and Busken cookies. He also enjoyed vintage train rides, boat rides and the drag strip. He was a man of honor, pride, dignity and a protector of his family. His wit, sarcasm and passion will truly be missed. May your mind be at peace, your body lay to rest and your spirit continue to flourish. Dennis passed June 10, 2023 at the age of 79.
