Dean was a very special man who was dear to me. It is so easy to understand why my mother fell in love with Dean. He is was a good man with the highest morals, religious obedience, patriotism, and loyalty. His beautiful first family speaks volumes of his qualities as a father and example. I am proud to be associated with his family and I strive to meet Dean’s standards as a man.

Dean loved his family dearly. His beautiful smile would instantly reflect his love for his children whenever he spoke of them.

Although I was older when he met and married my mother, I am proud to call Dean my mother’s husband. She truly loved Dean.

My comfort and prayers to his beautiful family. I KNOW that your love for your father was unconditional. Although it may not have always been apparent and he may not have known it, I loved him too. Peace to his family - Scott
