Dean graduated from Lackawanna Trail in 1994 where he played football, volleyball, wrestled, was a class officer, a member of the chorus, and known as a fun, humble person who had an infectious laugh.

Above all, he lived to see his son Kyle play football and baseball. Special thank you to the staff at Allied T.L. and to Dr. Michael Kondash and Dr. Daryl Krouse for all of their care.
