OMG....geez no wonder his name wss so familiar to me....sooo sad! What happened to Dean??July 17 at 1:06am
As I was just told, Dean was married with children. He passed away the same as Scott Clark passed out while drunk and aspirated. I was friends with him for years when he lived behind Paulding off Corbet Canyon. He had his issues with alcohol for years. He often called late at night just wanting someone to talk to. Boy, would my mom get mad. But ... Read Moreit seemed like his parent were gone for long periods of time. He said he was home alone all the time must have been really lonely. I have missed those late night calls. So sad I lost contact when his parents sold that house. Dean was a great friend to me so sweet. RIP DeanJuly 17 at 1:25am
wow, that's so sad Shannon, I'm sorry for your loss...July 17 at 4:32am
Bummer, I remember Dean from Paulding and AGHS. I went to his a house a couple of times after school. I remember it because he use to live close to coach Hill and we would go to coach's house to give him a hard time. RIPJuly 17 at 1:05pm
Wow, that is an old face I remember. He worked at Domino's pizza, while I worked at the yogurt shop 2 drs down in Grover. He was a funny guy.July 17 at 4:13pm
I remember Dean with a heart of gold and great handwriting. I know the handwriting is such a random thing to remember, but it is the little things....July 17 at 6:43pm
Shannon MacKenzie, I got those late night calls as well...all the time...Then one day they stopped and about three months went by and thats when I called him. His wife answered and thats when I heard the news.July 17 at 11:26pm
He could be so funny on those calls. I would laugh until I was too tired to keep my eyes open. My calla stopped when he moved from AG. I wish he would have kept intouch but I guess everyone drifts apart eventually.... I will miss my highschool friend :(July 17 at 11:56pm
Wow. So sad. RIP DeanJuly 19 at 11:51pm
I wondered myself what happened to Dean... He had the tone of voice "he was so sure of himself even if he did not know what he was talking about...we would laugh at each other and then teacher would glare at us...those were the days..RIP DeanJuly 20 at 10:53pm
dean and I rode the same bus home from school, he coulda walked cuz it wasn't far, but he just seemed to wanna hang out with people. He would make me laugh so hard and then pretend he didn't know why I was laughing at all... I was and still am missing him. Hope you found your peace, Deano.July 25 at 4:23am
Dean and I went to summer school together...Mr. Houck's drama class! We would rock out to Sabbath and AC/DC. We briefly had a summer romance, and always had a smile for each other. Dean will hold a special place in my heart. He was a true friend, a nice guy and it saddens me to hear of his death. RIP Dean....May God bless you and hold you until we meet again.
Dean and I used to ride my yz125 all over the place after school he was a good freind RIP dean.
I believe he took some pain meds and mixed them with alchohol . I rember the first time I met dean. We were walking home from paulding and it turned out we had the same favorite bord to flip over for gopher snakes and one day some other kids, Dan keller and Burton mallory were harassing me and Dean stuck up for me that's the kinda person he was. After that we became best friends and it stayed that way into our adult lives. Dean was the best man for my first marrige yrs latter we had a falling out and didn't talk for quite some time but when he had moved to arkansas he came by the house to say goodby and not too long after that he called me and said he was getting married and moving to lorain ohio. We kept in contact and had planed for me to come see him 2 days before he passed. I never got to talk to his wife or make the funeral, which is somthing I will regret for the remaining yrs of my life. Dean has been gone for a long time now. I still think of him every couple of weeks and miss the relationship we shared, he was more than a friend he was like a brother. I didn't realy real the pain of his passing until today. Maby because I never talked about it or maby it was seeing his pic. As the tears fall and the memories come to mind I will end with saying, Dean I loved you and miss you verry much. Rest in peace my beloved friend.
He thought of u as a Best Friend and brother I heard many stories
Dean would of been so Happy to read the nice commits about him. Sept.2nd, 1998 I didnt only loose my husband I lost my BestFriend. Dean taught me alot about life n what kinda of person I wanted to Be. Dean struggled with alcohol for a long time, he was sobber when we first met Best days we had. He was the boy from Cali and I was the out spoken Yankee (even tho Ohio was considered a mideast state) but ppl in Arkansas didnt understand us. Never a dull moment with Dean Ever.. Feb14th we would of been married 24yrs Id like to think it gets easier with time but there is always those SONGS or a phrase that makes it all surface.
