Joe Dean & I went to school together starting with John Ireland through WW Samuell. I remember him as such jovial, kind-hearted guy. If we shared a class I knew I could count on a few laughs. So glad to hear he had such a wonderful fulfilling life. RIP Fellow Spartan! 💙💛

There are not many men like Joe. I know that one of the special bonds Renee and I share is the bond of daughters loving their fathers. We share our first loves-our daddies. My prayers are with you my sweet friend. I know you will think about him everyday. Love and hugs to your family.

I have too many memories of Uncle Joe. But the one's that stands out to me most. Him playing Roy Orbison and dancing us girls around the living room. Or playing horseshoes at the Family Reunion with the men. Telling his stories of Webb, and traveling the back roads of East Texas.
Our hearts are heavy because of this loss, but shine with love for having known him.
Uncle Joe was one of the most special men I've ever known.
My heartfelt condolences to Aunt Donna, Renee, Deanna and Deedra. And the rest of the family.
I love you all.
