I knew Paul Dean many years ago in Blythe California. In fact, he and I once shared an apartment there. He also married a classmate of mine, Essie Pope, from the Palo Verde High School class of 1956. So, we were able to stay in touch over the years when we attended class reunions (last one in 2016) and homecomings. He was a friend and I will miss seeing his smiling face.

I remember Paul Dean Pruitt from many years ago back in Blythe, California. He was a very nice young man.
I grew up with his wife Essie down in Ripley and I am so sorry for her loss! Love and prayers for all the family
