Linda and family, I just found out about Deans passing. I am so sorry for your loss. Many many years ago Dean used to cookout for Linda and I. I haven't seen you since I moved to Cincinnati back in 1987 but think of you often.
Kept up thru the Christmas cards every year.
So sorry for your loss people. Hadn't seen Dean since 1987 but I remember our intellectual battles fondly. He was three floors above my office at Cassidy, Cassidy, Meuller and Price when he clerked for judge Alloy and saw him almost daily until he went to Sutkowski's office. Clearly Dean was the smartness member of the Peoria Bar. RIP buddy!!!
We are so sorry for your loss. Dean was a kind and good man. Our prayers are with you and the children.
Dean was a friend of mine and the younger brother of one of my best friends. I have known him since 1954. And when you've known someone that long, you learn quite a few things about him. What I learned was that he was honest, forthright, loyal, logical, brilliant, reliable, compassionate, devoted to his family, and always willing to help someone in need. He helped me and I will miss him.
I worked with Dean for six years (2000-2006), and his intellect and humor were great to be around. My condolences.
