    Very sorry for the family’s loss. Dean was a friend from Greenfield Village grade school, so very many years ago. Our class has remained in touch over the years, and we all considered Dean a friend. A very accomplished individual, with a wonderful sense of humor, he will be missed very much by all of us. We will all raise a glass to his memory, and keep him in our hearts.
