    Our lives are better for having known Dean. He taught us and our children each something. His competitive sense of humor was contagious. He will be greatly missed by our family.

    Carol Jean,

    So sorry to hear about Dean. He was a very neat man. He would do anything for anyone. He was a very good neighbor and a good example to us and our children. We will miss him working in his garden. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Carol,
    So sorry for your loss. Dean was your companion for over half your life. I know he will be really missed. I appreciate your emails and notes; and the fact that you have lived so close (Golden Shores) to me made me feel like we were neighbors.
    Take care. If there is anything I can do, please don’t hesitate to ask.
    Wish I could be to the service, but know my thoughts are with you.
