Des Moines - Dean Ralph Stotts of Des Moines passed away Sunday, August 5th.

Dean was born on March 18, 1933 in Valley Junction, Iowa to Ralph Clark and Rose Henrietta Stotts. He married Velma Tye Kinsey on February 16, 1957 and they were married for 61 years until her recent passing. Dean lived and worked in central Iowa his entire life, except for the four years he proudly served in the US Air Force, and after retirement, when he and Tye enjoyed winters in southern Texas.

Skilled with his hands and a masterful gardener, Dean also had a special wit and sense of humor that he shared with the fortunate who were close to him. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Dean is survived by sons, Dennis (Anne), Randy (Marion), Bill, and Rob; grandchildren, Greg (Becky), Andrew (Sarah), Ryan (Chantelle), Zach, and Danielle; great grandchildren, Isaiah and Samuel; brother and sister, Duane Stotts and Sandra VanWyk.
