Dean was a wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather. He spent his retirement enhancing the lives of his grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandson. He found joy in the simple things, nature and family. He was a fisherman who enjoyed fishing for catfish using his L90 fish hook that he guaranteed would catch fish.

Dean was so much more than a father-in-law to me, he was a dear friend. From the day we met in 1974 we discussed and sometimes debated deep issues, but never with malice. I will miss his tell Jerry to come give me a hug from him every time they talked. We all have our own personal history with him. Mine is deeply embedded in my heart. I love you!

Grandpa Dean will be missed. We were fortunate to have him live with us for a number of years and then to come back home for his final days. I loved him and miss him.
