When Dean came to our office, he brightened every single persons‘ mood. He had an incredible spirit and a cared for everyone around him. He was a friend to everyone he met. He was such a rare and amazing person. I’m proud to have known him. He truly touched my soul with his personality and will live on in me and all who knew him. I am so sad that he is gone. He made a difference in my life and the lives of many! Miss you, Dean!

Dean, I didn't know you for very long, but from the day I met you, I instantly liked you. Your sweet and sour, funny, sarcastic and loving comments always took me by surprise and made me laugh.

It is said that those who lived with us, now pass to live within us...

Wherever you are, continue your journey in peace.

I feel like a lost a brother. I met Deano some twelve plus years ago and we became fast friends. Deano and I had different friends, liked different music, and had differing views on many things, but we worked together, cared about each other, and spoke to each other almost everyday. I was with him Tuesday evening. I spoke with him on the phone Tuesday night. Wednesday he was gone. I still can't quite believe it. Deano's passing leaves such a hole in my world, my life, and in my heart, as I know it does for many.
I take some comfort in knowing that, although it was a struggle for him for many years, at least this happened quickly, and he left us as...Deano.
OMG ... I miss you buddy.

Deano is my whole world! We spoke literally every day! “Italian Cousins” we are family, He is my son’s Godfather, partners In fun, he is the GREATEST PERSON I KNOW! I love him soooo much. Every memory is a WONDERFUL one together so many good times, cooking competitions, teasing, laughing, debating, so much goodness. My Deano ❤️one of a kind he was so strong, a rock, caring, loving, my sons hero, the most loyal person you will ever meet. Heart of gold, “Gemini Genius” as he said.

Yankees, Giants games cooking “Sauce Competitions” Debating non-stop name a topic we covered it but always ended with laughs.

I’m so glad and feel truly honored to create a great memory together for the World to see Dean shine in action! “No Leftovers” as he like to remind me all the time 🤩A true superstar in every way wonderful 🥰 ❤️

Dean was like a brother to the both of us. He showed so much love to so many.

Dean watched us secretly fall in love, start dating, and he even attended our wedding (and critiqued our Wedding DJ's capabilities). We are honored to have shared these times of our life with him.

We pray for his peace, and for the comfort of his family.
