Dean was a good man a great firefighter and leader. He was a instrumental member of the fire department serving in many different positions including Chief. It was an honor knowing him and serving with him on the fire department. Thank you sir for your service. God bless

Dean and I attended Marmet Jr high and East Bank high school together . I first met him in the seventh grade. He was always happy and quick with a smile. I loved to hear him laugh.
Dean and I worked across the street from one another at DuPont. We were fellow veterans. He was always light hearted and had a great attitude. I am certain he will be missed greatly by his family. Rest In Peace my friend.
