I'm so very sorry to hear about Dean. I remember him from both the Leo Masonic Lodge and American Legion . My parents were John and Jeanette (Jan) Bireley and my grandparents were Irma and Harry Sunday. They lived in the first house south of the barbershop in Leo. May Dean rest in peace. He was a good man. Prayers. Judy Bireley

Dean and Tack were special lifetime friends I’m truly honored to call such. Can’t imagine your grief. I remember double dating with you guys in Dink’s Chevy convertible back in the fifties. Such fun and we were young! Dean loved you from the beginning to the end.
God bless you, and may He give you comfort.
