Dear Craig Family, I coached Football with Dean at Lakeview High School in Winter Garden, Florida for ten years. We also had many great fishing trips at John's Lake, Lake Hickory nut, and Twin Lakes with strings of Bass and Bream. Dean was a great coach, good friend, and a Brother in Christ. When a Child of Light leaves the Earth, the world becomes darker even on a bright sunny day. Beautiful people come in and out of ones life over a lifetime. Other people come in, but they can not take the place of the ones that left. Coach Craig was one of those special people to us. We are thankful and grateful that Dean is a Christian is safe at home with the LORD. Our prayers and condolences go out to the family, Love in Christ, Coach Joe Clenney and June Clenney

Saddens me that Dean has passed on. I can remember when I was a junior college tennis player at LBW in Andalusia and when we played Enterprise State, I was a handful with a temper at age 18. He once talked to me after a match and told me if I learned to harness all that energy and got that temper under control, I had the potential to be a good player. Never made the tour, but ended up as a sports writer at both The Enterprise Ledger and The Dothan Eagle, and when I had dealings with him and the coaches on staff for their sports, he was the same kind, considerate, thoughtful and articulate gentlemen as always. Rest in Peace Dean.
