My deepest condolences to Dean's loved ones.
I worked with Dean at the Squaw Creek Mine, along with his brothers George and Jerry.
Dean was a good union man and faithful union brother.
I will always remember his sense of humor and his willingness to lend a helping hand.
Dean often talked about his family and it was clear to see the great love he had for all his family. I believe the world is a little less now but the next life is a little improved.
Blessings to all Dean's loved ones
