Dean truly enjoyed traveling in his motor home, boating and his classic cars especially his beloved red 1965 Chevelle SS. His love of adventure took him on numerous trips to Hawaii, Europe and throughout the United States.
Dean will be fondly remembered for his love of family and his Lord and Savior. He always had the ability to make everyone laugh with his humor and always had a smile on his face and Eagles music playing.
