On this sad occasion Delores and I grieve the loss of a wonderful man of God. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Kit, Jackie and the family members we never had the privilege of meeting.
We fondly remember Dean's counsel on my then pending hip replacement. It was the summer of 2011. Terrified of surgery I had already postponed the procedure, TWICE. One Sunday morning I turned to Dean, himself a veteran of hip replacement. I confessed to a paralyzing fear of going under the knife.
Dean's response was calming and reassuring. "Schedule the surgery," he said. I did, eventually. Frankly it was a piece of cake. As Dean predicted, I was back on my feet in no time.
Thank you Dean for touching our lives with testimony of God's love. We joyfully remember the many conversatons we shared at Calvary Baptist with you, Kit and Jackie. We shall meet again.
John & Delores Pastirchak
