Memories Timeline


  1. What an amazing man of God he was. He played such an important part in my life when I was young. Great singer and guitarist. So many great memories singing together and traveling. I only wish I could of seen him one more time, since the last time we seen each other in was in 1983. Wow how time flies. I’ll seen you in heaven brother. Aka Pooch

  2. Candle 2Deano was an important part of our Bismarck VFW Honors Team, as well as being a Life Member in our VFW Post 6947. We missed him when his disabilities entered his life. Far different from the Vietnam Veteran we knew and remember. Our deepest sympathy to his Family. Good memories of Deano. Rest well.

  3. I remember Dean and his siblings, Jeanie and Lee, as children who would come and play at our house when their parents visited from Illinois. He was a kind, fun loving, prankster we all enjoyed being around. Sadly, we all grew up and didn’t stay close. We became reacquainted as adults at the Bismarck school reunions. He was part of the VFW color guard. We would often chat. During the course of our conversations, he never failed to tell me how much he loved our country and how honored he was to have served. We will miss you, cousin. The West kids!
