“Our deepest sympathy to the family. May the God of all comfort gives you comfort and hope that is needed at this time.
“DEAN SR. I LOVED WATCHING YOU PLAY FOR THE NY KNICKS, YOU WERE ALWAYS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLAYERS OF ALL TIME...I HAD MET YOUR SON DEAN WHEN HE WAS COVERING A STORY IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD. WHEN YOU WERE IN THE FIRE, I CONTACTED HIM TO CHECK ON HOW YOU WERE DOING. I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH A LOT LATELY AND I JUST FOUND OUT THAT YOU HAD PASSED AWAY. IF I HAD KNOWN I WOULD HAVE CAME TO YOUR SERVICES TO BID YOU A CORRECT FAREWELL. YOU ARE STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE SUPERSTAR LEGENDS...YOU WILL BE...
“Saw Dean play in the Snakepit at Tulane University against the New Orelans Jazz and Pistol Pete Maravich when he was with the Atlanta Hawks in 1974. Ode to a simpler time. Rest in Peace.
