We will all miss Deans witty sense of humor and sweet, kind personality. He was one of a kind.

Sarah Kimme on Jul 27, 2020

I had the pleasure of visiting and play games with Dean, almost everyday for the past 2 years, at Good Samaritan Home. He would always make us laugh with a joke and smile with his personality. He will be greatly missed in my activity room. Thank you Dean for always making our evenings special.

So sad to hear of Dean's passing but glad to hear that he and Betty Lou are reunited. Prayers for his family.

We knew Betty & Dean through the "Camper Stamper" group. Great people, put a smile on our face, will remember them with warmth in our heart. Condolences to the family.

Dean was definitely one of the good ones. He always had a smile on his face and made others smile as well. Thinking of you, Stevens family.
