The Lord called another angel home; our brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend, Victor Dean Winer, aka Dean-O, from Beaver, passed away April 7, 2016.
He was born April 19, 1958, to George and Maria in Beaver, and lived a subsistence lifestyle.
He loved hunting, going out in the woods, fishing, spending time being bear-watch for Barb while she picked berries, and going on boat rides with Barb, Shawn and his baby, Michael. He always thought of his nieces and provided them with whatever Native food he had.
