    It was such sad news to hear of Dean's passing. He was a great supplier rep and friend for all of my years with Graybar and I think fondly on the many conversations that we had. He had a very strong faith and I really appreciated our discussions in the last few years regarding God's plans for us all. I know that Dean is in a special place and my prayers are with his family.

    I was in a business meeting with Jerry Mattingly when he shared with me the passing of my good friend Dean. He called on me for many years and not only was a great representative of his company but during his presents with me I felt the presents of God. He would work his business schedule to call on me in the afternoon and then we would attend my church that evening. After leaving his business we stayed in touch. We had spoken only a couple weeks ago and always had prayer for each other when the conversation was over. Thoughts and prayers to his family. He will be greatly missed.  No doubt in my mind that his presents in heaven will be accompanied by others who he was responsible for being there. He was a blessing in my life. Maynard

    I was so sorry to hear of Dean's passing.  I worked with Dean many times  ordering material for my jobs at Cameron and Barkley.  He was always so helpful and so nice to deal with.  He will be greatly missed, but I am sure he is in a much better place.  Good-bye my friend.  I will see you again one day.

    Janie, I was so surprised to hear of Dean's passing.  Laura called today and said that Darlene Jackson had asked her today if that was the same Dean. Laura called me a little while ago and I was able to locate the obituary. I saw Dean a year ago, and he looked good and although we only talked briefly I knew he was a happy soul.  I so very sorry for your loss and will do anything I can to help you. I bet he's dancing in heaven!! I will continue to pray for your healing! Jan Boyce

    It was sad to hear of my cousin's passing. Our hearts and prayers go to his family at this time. Growing up, I remember countless trips to Greensboro and all the marathon basketball games we had on Wolfe Road.

    Dear Janie, April, Adam, and Andrew,    I have SUCH GREAT memories of growing up with you guys on Southlake Drive.  Dean was always so humble and kind with us. I remember clearly the days of playing basketball at church and attending services with you - where I realized his spirituality was clearly behind his daily persona.  Brittany and I wish we could make it today in person, but wanted you to know that you are in our thoughts & prayers - and our love extends to you!

    I met Dean at church some four years ago and we also shared in two Bible studies and a common interest in prison ministry which Dean served devotedly on a weekly basis. He jokingly called me Lazarus after my challenges with death several years ago which the Lord amazingly brought me through. We spoke by telephone and prayed together last week and I saw him in church last Sunday, never dreaming I would not see him again on this earth. Dean was a blessing to many, a dear friend and I am overwhelmed by his lost, but comforted by our Savior whom Dean knew and served well. I pray for you, his family and friends, as Dean was loved and will be missed by many. He was a dear Christian brother and my friend.

    Randy and Diane Hunter says:
    Dean was a lifelong friend who will be greatly missed. He was a joyful person who enjoyed his life journey and shared his joy with all. I first met Dean at Greensboro College where he led Greensboro College to a conference basketball championship in 1967/'68. After college Dean worked with his father in a family business which flourished. Dean was joyful in his business accomplishments. After marrying his precious wife Janie, he fathered two sons and a daughter. He was so proud of his family and enjoyed sharing the challenges of life with them. About twenty years ago Dean began his travels with our savior Jesus Christ. Dean was unwavering in his rebirth. Each day he witnessed to others allowing Christ to work through him. He joyfully led a prison ministry where he shared and taught others about God's blessings shared through him by the Holy Spirit. Janie and his family are suffering through this loss. Keep in mind he is standing among the many mansions in Heaven. I assure you Dean is joyful but prayerful understanding the earthly pain his family feels. It was an honor to share this life with Dean. As Paul, the apostle, states in his letters to the early churches, Dean is a Saint! Thank you for everything Dean!

    We are so very sorry for your loss (and ours too).  Dean was an amazing man completely without pretense who "walked the walk" every day of his life.  What a shining example of goodness he was for so many.  I don't know that I've ever man a person with such a gift of gab as Dean....he loved a good story and was honestly interested in everyone he spoke with.  Bless you all.
