Dean was our neighbor in Yuma. He was a good man and we will miss him dearly.
His interests were very wide and we could have a conversation with him regarding any subject.

Sorry to hear Dean has passed away. We knew him from Mesa Verde park, in Yuma. Condolences to his family. Dave & Dodie Cuthbert.

You will be sorely by Geri and I. You were a great friend and neighbor. Living beside you in Mesa Verde enriched our lives and made us want to return each year. You always reminded Geri of her Dad as you both had the same accent. [Her being from Iowa before I stole her away and turned her into a Canadian.] I will miss our morning chats as well as our Happy Hour get-togethers. Rest easy my friend.

A true gentleman with a wicked sense of humour and a twinkle in his eye. I will miss you. It was an honour to know you.

Deepest condolences to all Dean’s family I was his neighbor in Mesa Verde . Great man. Will miss him .

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the family.
We knew Dean from Yuma and loved listening to his stories. We”ll surely miss him
