Dean was very kind, caring and would help anyone in need.

 

Dean had a passion for fishing and squirrel hunting. He loved to cook the fish that he caught and the squirrels that he shot, with the herbs and vegetables from his own garden. It was always a delicacy that the whole family admired.

 

He was also an avid music lover and would often times sit with his earbuds in his ears while sunbathing.

 

He was known for his quick wit, which would often times coincide with his famous sense of humor.

 

He had an infectious smile that would light up any room. He was the life of the party and no party will ever be the same.
