What a shock! I've known Dean for many years - he was employed at our car lot for many years and we've kept in touch through the years. He was always so pleasant and funny and always willing to help others. I'll miss him greatly - gone too soon!

I have known Dean since I was 13. He has been the dad I never had I even called him dad. This completely shatters me and I'm sure his sons and daughter. I hope he rests in peace and that their is an auto playground in the sky.

RIP Deane! It still has not sunk in that you are gone! You played such a huge role in my life! Your laugh and mannerisms will forever live in my heart and mind!
