Dean(Harold) was a sweet soul. Always smiling always laughing. I had the pleasure of know Dean since grade school at Murphy school. He use to chase me around the playground every recess. Over the past 50 years we ran into each other (mostly in Walmart). We always gave a hug and caught up a little. His sweet smile will b missed
