I was Blessed to know Dean and have to opportunity to work in partnership with him on multiple Real Estate and mortgage endeavors for many years. He was a man of the highest integrity, never afraid to get into the big challenging deals and willing to work as hard as it took to make them successful, while always maintaining a calm demeanor and refreshing sense of humor. He was a man who could keep his life in balance, always loving and caring for his family. I will miss hearing him say "sounds good, let's do it". Dean, I pray that you are at peace. We'll take care of things here 'til we meet again.
