I am so sorry for your loss. 😢.

Sorry for your loss! Thoughts and prayers are with you.

May your happy memories give you peace and comfort during this challenging time. Being a classmate of Dean’s has given me, Kathy, several fond memories as well. Thinking of the family as you and friends celebrate the life of your beloved. 


I’m remembering Dean from all our years in school… strange now to think we all knew each other … my girls grew up in CA and they knew a few kids for a couple years than … any way I haven’t seen Dean since high school but looking here at his picture I may have and we just didn’t know. I’m relatively sure none of us 76ers went totally out of the realms of reality, so he’s with God now. I pray the good Lord sends strength and comfort to all his family. God bless you.

Words can’t express how very sorry I am for your loss. May God wrap you in His arms and give you comfort.

I remember alot of the great things my friend cousin did for me ,in that time ,I knew he had my back and I stood up for him whenever he needed me which wasn’t much because he seemed to have a plan before a plan was ever needed, when we needed anything vehicle related he was on his game! Things needed to be in order and always gave his best and always thought he should have been a farmer ! Now that he is gone. I’m going to miss the chance I promised him at my son’s wedding I would make time to visit which always made me feel happy and he could show me what was up to ? Now that he is gone I’ll treasure those memories of being little kids on the farm sneeking around the corners so our parents couldn’t find us because if they did we had some explaining to do? But in all he married the right girl and became a man which to this day nothing but respect for him and forever be at a loss for not making that time to connect again ! I’ll miss knowing you were around !

So sorry for your loss. Dean and I were in the military together in Bismarck ,and at one point we were roommates. Kevin I hope will remember me also.

Thoughts and prayers sent to all who knew Dean. I first met Dean 20 plus years ago as a customer of mine and over those years he became a friend and companion! I always enjoyed the company and sharing of stories with him. It was always a pleasure and good laugh listening to the stories of camping, riding motorcycle and what seemed like his passion, harvest season. I remember he was always proud of his old “Mouszers” aka cats. We always had a secret inside joke that myself, my dad Joe and my uncle Miles shared that not many new what it was but it was always followed up with the terms “ol buddy ol pal” and a dang good laugh. I will forever remember that infectious laugh and smile that always followed those terms. Dean I will miss you and you were a great friend! Until we meet again “ol buddy ol pal”

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Dean and will always remember him smiling and laughing and talking about his cats. May he rest in peace.

I enjoyed working with Dean at the City. I’m so sorry for your loss.
