Joseph William Dean

AGE: 66 • Island Heights

Joseph William Dean, 66, of Island Heights, passed away on July 28, 2017. He was born at Paul Kimball Hospital and grew up in Island Heights. Joseph graduated Toms River H.S., received his BS in Biology at Bethany College in West Virginia, and his Master's in Physiology at Georgia Tech. He was first employed at ICI, Wilmington, DE, then moved on to Exxon Labs in North Jersey. At Exxon he was recognized for his outstanding work in Alaska on the Valdez Oil Spill.

In his younger years Joseph raced sailboats on the Barnegat Bay. Because of his love of sailing and of the Chesapeake Bay, Joseph moved to Kent Island, MD. There he started his own highly successful Data Base Design business which he ran for over 20 years. Joseph sailed the east coast from Maine to Florida and to the Bahamas and was a winter resident of Stuart, FL. He was a member of both the Island Heights and Kent Island Yacht Clubs.

Joseph was predeceased by his father Joseph E. Dean and is survived by his mother Myrtle P. Dean of Island Heights.
