DEAN ELLIOTT GILBERT Obituary
Gilbert, Dean Elliott

Dean was born on January 13, 1929 in Gridley California and went home to be with the LORD on April 17, 2014. He spent most of his youth living in Oakland, California where he was on the high school football team. While attending college at Southern California College he met his wife, Valois Jean Gilbert. Dean continued his education at Laverne College and Long Beach State earning a bachelor's degree, a teaching credential and a Masters degree in administration. He and Jean moved with their two young sons to Costa Mesa where they both worked as school teachers and later Dean became the first principal at Canyon School. In their spare time Dean and Jean built several houses and dozens of rental units which allowed them both to retire early and devote their time to traveling and doing Missionary work with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Papua New Guinea. Dean loved fishing, camping, church, family and friends. He was an incredibly kind and generous man and will be sorely missed by friends and family alike. He is survived by his second wife, Lois; his sons, Stephen and Gary; his grandchildren, Adrianne, Rachael, Laura, John, Judah, Hosanna; and his great grandchildren, Tristan, Rainer, Phoenix and Kailee-Rose.

Memorial Service will be at 10:00 AM May 3 at Calvary Chapel Living Word, 17101 Armstrong in Irvine California.
