He was born November 16, 1905, in Missouri, the son of Newton P. Dean and Artha Cordelia Dean. Married Alma Marie Beitler, March 6, 1927, in Gunnison, Colorado.

Worked for Gunnison County (Colorado) for twenty plus years. Also worked for the U.S. Forest Service for fifteen years. His size was only exceeded by his heart to friends, neighbors, strangers and above all else his family, who loved and will miss him dearly.`Good-bye, Papa!'
