Dean attended and graduated from Wallace High School in 1978.

Dean started working nightshift at the Coeur Mine at the age of 16. He had worked in the mining industry for several years; mining was Dean’s passion.

Dean was a member of the NRA and had been a member of the Night Riders Snowmobile Club. He lived his life to the fullest camping, snowmobiling, hunting and fishing with his beloved dog, George. First and foremost was his commitment to the Lord and his family. Dean was very kind and giving to all.
