Prayers go out to his family and friends. I've had the pleasure of knowing Bill "Dean" for about 4 years now and he was always so courteous and helpful and great to talk with and play pc games too! I will miss your Good Mornings and I know you are in a better place!

I am so blessed to have grown up with Dean at church & youth group. Dean never knew a stranger! What I will always remember about Dean was his heart. Last summer when we were in visiting, he told me at church that he had been praying for me! I will never forget that. My prayers are with you all, praying for peace & comfort that only HE can give. Love you all!

I did not know Dean personally, but if he is anything like his mom he was a special guy. So sorry for your loss. May God comfort the family

Deano, I can't believe you're gone. We had some good times, even some ornery times. I will miss doing 5K's with you. I will mostly miss just talking to you. Lord knows you've done a lot of listening to me. I could always make you laugh. Mostly in a big crowd when we were supposed to be quiet. You were a great person and fun to be around. A wonderful dear friend. I love and miss you my buddy. I send many prayers for your family and sweet Momma. You are truly missed.
