Our father and brother, Jeffrey Eldon Dean, 69, passed away Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, after a lengthy illness.
"Jeff" Dean was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on Jan. 10, 1944. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1961 to 1965, where he was stationed in Morocco and Holloman Air Force Base. He then chose to settle with his family in Alamogordo, where he served as a city commissioner and owned a local automotive retail business. We will remember him as loving and supportive father.
Jeff was preceded in death by his parents Elizabeth "Betty" and Ned Dean.
He is survived by his sister Jan Wechsler, of Boca Grande, Fla.; his children, Rick Dean, of Charleston, S.C., and Annette Dean, of Albuquerque. He is also survived by six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
