Christopher L. Dewey

Christopher Lee Dewey was

born on February 9, 1983 at the

Cambridge Hospital. He was in-

jured in the line of duty on Feb-

ruary 18, 2009, and died

peacefully from complications

of those injuries at home on

August 9, 2010.

Chris was the oldest of five

brothers, whom they looked up

to as their hero, as well as two

step-sisters. He had a superb

educational career attending

Cambridge-Isanti High School, where football became

his favorite sport. He assisted in winning the Minnesota

State Football Championship in class 4A during his sen-

ior year in high school. Chris then attended the Law

Enforcement Training Program in Hibbing, MN for the

next two years, continuing to play football for the Cardi-

nals there. Throughout high school and college, Chris

was employed as a cook for The Creamery Café in Isan-

ti, and The Old Howard in Hibbing, as well as installing

and repairing sprinkler systems. Following graduation,

Chris applied for many law enforcement positions around

the state, and was hired by the Mahnomen County

Sheriff’s Office in 2004. For as long as he was a deputy,

Chris was a member of both the Twin Lakes and later the

Waubun volunteer firefighter departments; a position he

gained much gratification from.

Chris married his high-school sweetheart of six years,

Emily (Boulden), on March 23, 2007 at the Mahnomen

County Courthouse. They enjoyed spending time out-

doors, including: fishing, camping, target shooting, and

canoeing. Chris was an avid hunter and outdoorsman;

killing four deer the last season before he was shot. Chris

was also a devoted family man; always eager to help

those in need, and was looking forward to starting a fami-

ly.

Those who knew Chris appreciated his sense of hu-

mor, and true love of life. His kindness and generosity

were second to none.

Chris will be dearly missed by many friends and family,

including his wife Emily, mother Poppe, step-father Keith,

Father Mark, step-mother Jennifer, brothers Daniel, Phil-

ip, Henry, Douglas, and sisters Sara, and Hana, and nu-

merous uncles, aunts, and cousins. Chris will be joined in

Heaven by his Grandfather Byron, and infant sister Tracy

Marie.
