  1. We are both very saddened by Dean’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers go to Anne and Dean’s children and family.

  2. Knew Dean first about 1946-47. We both really grew up in Rolling Hills. Lost track of him when I went on active duty in 1953. Very sorry we never re-connected. Have picture of he and Larry Bark drinking champagne at my parents home in Rolling Hills about 1950-51. RIP. Attn:Doug-do you know Bill White in Kamuela?

  4. We will always have happy memories of Dean on the tennis court — he had one very wicked backhand! And, who could ever forget that loving smile on his face whenever he mentioned his “Annie”. It was a blessing to have known him and to have spent some time with him on the tennis court.

  5. Hello, Dr. Dick was one of the BEST “gas- passers” there ever was. I worked with him at LCMH for 5 years (1985-1990), and he was my anesthesiologist for MY surgeries. I know that he will be missed by all. My best to the family. Friendly, Lisa

  6. We remember Dean when he explained rock formations to the Cub Scouts on hikes and in his home. He explained everything so thoroughly and answered all questions with great understanding and patience. It was a pleasure to be there.
