Dewey Grigsby


Dewey attended Canadian Public Schools, where he graduated in 1963.  Dewey played the point guard position for Canadian Schools and holds the records for free throw, shooting percentage, etc. After high school Dewey enrolled and continued to play ball for Connors State College.  After graduating from Connors he finished his physical education degree at Northeastern State University. In 1969 he was drafted into the United States Army, where he served his country with distinction and bravery.  He returned from the war in 1971 and the following year he married the love of his life Brinda Hearod.  They first settled in Checotah, OK owning and operating 69 Diner, while Brinda operated the diner, Dewey was out on the open road hauling watermelons, onions and various other loads to make ends meet.  Dewey is a trucker at heart and that is where the dream of Trucks for You was started on those long hours out on the open road.  Dewey moved his family to Muskogee, OK in 1979 where he started in the sales and service business of trucking before eventually starting Trucks For You in 1986. He developed this long haul trucking company into one of the premier regional trucking companies. Dewey still lives in Muskogee, where he has been active in the community and served on the Hilldale Public Schools Board of Education. Dewey and Brinda have two daughters.  Misty and her husband Chad Choat live in Claremore, OK and have two daughters, Shelby and Morgan.  Dusti and her husband Jay Calavan live in Ft Gibson, OK with their two sons, Carson and Conner. Dewey recently retired from the day to day operations of the business so he can spend more time chasing his four grandkids around in all their activities. If you ask Dewey his greatest accomplishment in life he is sure to point to his relationship with God and acknowledgment of his savior Jesus Christ.  Dewey is a devoted son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather who is admired and loved by many.
