Dewey started his automotive career when he was 14 years old. His father, a USPS mechanic, had him replace an alternator on their 1986 Plymouth Reliant. He started working as a shipping and receiving clerk at Critz Motors of Savannah in 1991, and later became assistant service manager in 1995.
Dewey decided to return to parts and continued his journey as a parts panager. Seventeen years later, with years of import experience, he is now Parts Manager of Japanese Motor Works. His pride and joy is his son, Charles Kinchen.
