Dean was a wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather. He spent his retirement enhancing the lives of his grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandson. He found joy in the simple things, nature and family. He was a fisherman who enjoyed fishing for catfish using his L90 fish hook that he guaranteed would catch fish. We will remember the stories from his childhood, including meeting Einstein and Oppenheimer. He will be missed, but the love he gave us will live with us forever. Private services will be held at a later date. Arrangements by CONROY FUNERAL HOME.
