I am a proud graduate of Rice H.S. and remember that when Dean walked into the gymnasium, the principal, faculty, and all the students stood and applauded him each time, he was that beloved and already famous even as a senior! Dean "the Dreams put Rice on the map! I remember his entrance into the gym like it was yesterday. That was in 1966.
May his soul rest in peace. Dean, you died too soon but you live in memory.
