Dean was a car collector and was a member of the Sundowners Car Club. Earlier in his life, he enjoyed drag racing at local racetracks. He enjoyed long, peaceful drives in his pickup, hunting, and fishing. Dean made a lot of friends and was more of a good listener than a conversationalist.

    To the family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you be comforted by the “Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” (2 Cor 1:3) that one day, “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29) May these promises from our Heavenly Father give you comfort now and real hope for the future. Deepest sympathy.
