What a man and what a Friend. I’ll always remember the all night carpet work at the old First National bank building. Dean’s father asked me if I wanted to help and I said sure. Never again! Who can forget Dean’s smile, purposeful walk and warm handshake? Dean was a friend’s friend. To Pauline and the family, he will be missed by all of South Arkansas and the surrounding area. He was truly one of the honest and most decent men I ever knew. Love and miss you brother and our prayers are with your family. John Ralston and family

My condolences to the entire Storey family. Some of my fondest teen memories were playing summer baseball for the Storey's Carpet team. Mr. Dean would pick us up in JC and take us to the airport field on game nights. I still vividly remember us bouncing around in the back of that work van trying to hold on to a seat on a bucket or roll of carpet! He was always super friendly to everyone and will be dearly missed.
