    We met Dean when Floyce and I attended ASU. We had a potluck group from college that met often. Dean was such a good guy. We were saddened to hear of his passing into the light. We know the family has lots of Sony memories of him. Cherish them as that makes him continue in your lives. Blessings and prayers. Donna

  • Have not seen Dean for a long time. Looks like he stayed handsome forever. Sometimes I get sad about this journey we all must take and the time it takes to be together again. Please accept my sincere condolence and know you , Floyce will always be a legend in Mesa, I still laugh at some of your fun stories. Hugs.
