Dewey will be profoundly missed by all who knew and loved him. Survivors include his wife, Andrea Plautz; four children: Becky Plautz of Yankton, Preston (Teresa) Plautz of Brandon, SD, Michael (Cassie) Plautz of Yankton, and Megan Plautz of Yankton; his eight grandchildren: Dillon Plautz, Parker Plautz, Jameson Plautz, Stella Plautz, Norah Plautz, William Plautz, Raelyn Plautz, and Rohanne Plautz; siblings, Bonnie (Jim) Halper of Kewaskum, WI, Dwight (Vicki) Plautz of Horicon, WI, Michael (Becky) Plautz of Baraboo, WI, Jeffrey (Pam) Plautz of Cambria, WI; and many nieces and nephews.
