Robert was such a wonderful man. I remember when he came to Knoxville. We worked together at Norfolk Southern and he was a pleasure to work with.

It was such a shock to hear of Dean's passing and we are so saddened by this. After not seeing Dean for a long time we were blessed to see him several times after Greg's passing and while he was in Columbus to move his Daddy. He was a kind and gentle soul and he will be missed by all who knew him. God bless the family.

I have been blessed to have so many people in my life that I consider "framily". They are more than friends, they are family. Dean and his family are among them. Through Lydia I got to know Dean before we met in person. I felt a family bond with him the minute we met. Lydia and Dean can now tend their garden in heaven together.
