The happiest of memories this family has of DeWain is when he helped Craig coach Bretts Little League baseball team. We at a practice behind the HS and They were taking fielding practice and Tate and I were running bases while DeWain was throwing balls to different bases. Deborah was running to first base and DeWain threw the ball to first and beaned her in the back of the head. Poor guy he was so upset he had hurt her but she was laughing so hard she nearly wet her pants. He was a wonderful help and the boys loved him. We also remember going to their wedding and seeing his beautiful smile as he saw Suzanne come down the aisle. We thank God for our friendship thru the years. Love, hugs and prayers!! Deborah,Craig, Amy, Brett and Tate Fuller
