Dean was a devoted husband, father, paw paw, brother, uncle, and friend. Dean was raised with his brothers and sister in Nashville, TN by his grandmother and his father, Buck. He attended Highland Heights Middle School. He later met the love of his life, Marilyn and shared a very blessed 33 years of marriage with her. Dean supported his family by working as a brick layer for 25 years until he went into business as a roofer for the next 11 years with his son-in-law, Ronnie Muncey. He loved his family and friends, having fun, and spending time with the ones he loved. Dean was outspoken and always said what was on his mind. He enjoyed playing softball with his friends and was a great pitcher and 2nd baseman. He was good with a pool stick and for several years competed in a league. Dean was an avid fisherman and could catch anything that swam. He shared this passion with his oldest grandson, William Dean, and taught him everything he knew. Dean loved to play horse shoes and was quite skilled at the game. If you ever found yourself in a tournament with him, he was definitely the one to draw as your partner. He was a dedicated Nascar fan and took many trips to Talladega, which was where he met his wife, Marilyn. Dean, Marilyn, and their friends made many memories there. Dean was always there for his family. We will keep his memory alive and carry him in our hearts each and every day, no matter where life may take us. We have been truly blessed and thankful for every second we spent with him. Dean will be deeply missed and forever loved. A celebration of Dean's life will be conducted Saturday, January 12, 2013, at Temple Baptist Church, 117 Marlin Rd. White House, TN 37188, at 11am.
