Dewey, John B.  
John B Dewey of West Grove John B. Dewey, 92, passed away on Monday, March 16, 2015 in West Grove, Pa. Born on June 27, 1922 in Syracuse, N.Y., John was the youngest child to Lillian and Maurice Dewey. John grew up in Warners, N.Y. and graduated from Warners High School in 1938. In 1940, he entered Cornell University’s School of Agriculture. In 1942, he joined the Navy and served as a Pharmacist’s Mate, Second Class for two and one-half years. Returning to Cornell in 1946, he became Chancellor of Alpha Zeta fraternity, graduated in 1948 and married Marilyn A. Dulin in 1949. Raised on a dairy farm in Warners, N.Y., John was always a farmer at heart who enjoyed the agriculture business, gardening, and livestock. A respected judge of dairy cattle who showed Ayrshires at the New York state fair for thirteen years, he was champion dairy cattle showman at Cornell in 1941, and was also a member of Cornell’s intercollegiate livestock and dairy judging teams. Over the years, he was routinely asked to judge at county and state fairs throughout the mid-Atlantic and New England states. John started his professional career as editor of the Ayrshire Digest and in 1953 joined DuPont’s Agricultural Products division where he held various product marketing and management positions until his retirement in 1986. Never wanting to just relax, John served on the Landscaping committee at Jenner’s Pond for a number of years. John loved to garden and spend time in his yard, and took great pride in making it beautiful. His garden rewarded him with many fruits and vegetables, and he was very happy to share them with his friends and neighbors. John was a very friendly, outgoing person who could strike up a conversation with anyone, and he often did. A simple and unassuming person, John took great pleasure in his family and friends. He was a very devoted husband to Marilyn, his wife of 65 years. John is survived by a sister Arlene; sons Michael and wife Denise, Robert, and Thomas; a daughter Carol and husband Steve; and three grandchildren Alex Burton, Catherine Burton, and Elizabeth Dewey. A memorial service in celebration of both John and Marilyn’s lives will be held 10 a.m. Friday March 27, 2015 at the Episcopal Church of the Advent, 401 North Union St. Kennett Square, PA 19348. Interment will be held privately in the adjoining church memorial garden.

Mendenhall Jr., William Kenneth  
William Kenneth Mendenhall Jr. of Juno Beach, Florida William Kenneth Mendenhall Jr. age 83, of The Waterford, Juno Beach, Florida passed away peacefully on the 10th of March, 2015 after a hard fought battle with pancreatic cancer. Ken Mendenhall was born on the 27th January 1932 in Englewood, New Jersey, son of the late William K. Mendenall, Sr. and the late Jeanne Pierce Mendenhall. Ken graduated from Leonia High School and studied at Hamden Sydney before joining the Navy in 1952 during the Korean War. He resumed studies at the University of Virginia, Theta Chi fraternity, graduating in 1954. In 1955 he married Barbara and moved to Palo Alto, California to study law at Stanford University, graduating in 1957. Ken then had a successful career in the oil department of Citibank, moving with his family to London in 1960. In 1973, he set up the London merchant banking subsidiary of Banco Urquijo (later Banco Urquijo Hispano Americano Ltd.) which he ran for almost fifteen years. In 1964 he bought a family home in East Grafton, Wiltshire which, by a twist of fate, was only a few miles from the village of Mildenhall in the Kennet valley, near the Marridge Hill home of his ancestor Benjamin Mendenhall, a Quaker who bought land from William Penn and emigrated to Kennett Square, Pennsylvania in 1685. In 1967 the purchase of an Irish draft mare called Cinderella sparked a lifelong passion for foxhunting and horse breeding. In 1987 Ken retired and moved with Barbara to a small farm in Exford, on Exmoor in Somerset, UK where he rode to hounds six days a week (hunts do not meet on the Sabbath in England!) with the staghounds and four packs of foxhounds in that wonderful moorland country. In 1992 Ken and Barbara began spending summer in Pennsylvania and spring in Florida, returning to Exmoor for the autumn. Being in Florida for spring training enabled Ken to renew his passion for baseball. Summers in Pennsylvania allowed him to pursue research into his family history in which he took a great interest. Ken shared his enthusiasm for entertaining, foxhunting, baseball, family history and Spanish culture with great zest. He will be missed by many friends on both sides of the Atlantic. He is survived by his wife of fifty-nine eventful and happy years, Barbara Suchy Mendenhall, his sister Jeannine McLaughlin of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania (George), son William Kenneth III of London, UK (Mary Elisabeth), daughter Jennifer of Hyattsville, Maryland (Michael) and grandchildren Pierce, Luke, and Tobias and Henry and Vivian. Services and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, a contribution may be made to Cancer Research Institute, 55 Broadway 1802, New York, NY 10006 www.cancerresearch.org or to Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation, 5300 East Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33407 www.hpbcf.org or phone 561-494-6887.
