Dean was a good friend and a fellow Lion while he was an active member. He was always
upbeat and willing to help. A fun guy and will miss him for certain. Last time I talked with
him at Al's Barber Shop in November he seemed so thin and worn down from the treatments and I told him that I would be praying for him and I did. May his soul rest in peace.

Hey Dean,
Thanks for the many walks we took together every morning for many years on Burkley Road. We had many great conversations and laughs together. You were a great guy and fun to be with and I will forever miss those times. May God be with you and rest in peace ol' buddy.
