I was so sorry to learn of Dean's passing. I very much enjoyed talking with him at the Junction Cafe over the Memorial Day weekend. I was back in town for my high school class reunion, the class in which his son, Michael, was a member. We discussed this loss and I also had the opportunity to talk with Kelly and meet his wife, Beth, and children, Erica and Connor. I know Dean was very proud of his family, and rightly so. He was a fine man and will be missed. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time.

So many memories,,of going to Uncle Dean and Aunt Laveta's place in Bedford Iowa for family gatherings,,of Thanksgiving and Christmas at the McClurg farm in Maryville Mo,,,too many to name.
Uncle Dean was a strong, silent member of the family,,and strong and deep in his faith of God and family. He will be missed by so many.
Praying for strength for his family in the coming days and God's peace.
