I only talked to Dean a handful of times but you could just tell that he was a great guy from the get go.
Marlin Crew - keep your heads up. Keep building and wheeling for Dean.

My prayers are with Ladawna in the loss of both her husband and child--and with everyone who knew him.

It's upsetting to think that God allowed this to happen, but then we must think of all the work that Dean has done for so many people. All the people that appreciated him and people that are affected by his living and passing.
Over the past year or so I have heard Dean's name come up quiet a few times. Whether it was from a friend that visited the shop and hung out with him, or whether it was just someone talking on the board about his great customer service, it was all great!
I finally had the honor of meeting him in person at the roundup last Saturday. We hung out for about an hour and talked about his marriage and child on the way. He was so proud he was glowing. In that short hour I realized what a great guy he was and was honored to have met him, and the honor i feel now doesn't even compare to how I felt last week.
I will continue to keep LaDawnna in my prayers that she makes a full recovery emotionally and physically.
RIP Dean, you are missed.

More info from TrackVino...
Local Newspaper - Fresno Bee -
Two killed in traffic accident
Two people were killed Sunday afternoon after two vehicles collided at an intersection east of Hanford, authorities said.
The names of the deceased were not made public Sunday, but a woman who suffered major injuries in the wreck was identified as Ladawna Tyler, 38, of Kingsburg, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The CHP reported that a 22-year-old Lemoore man was heading west on Grangeville Boulevard while Tyler was traveling north on Sixth Avenue.
The Lemoore man ran the stop sign at the intersection, and slammed into the vehicle Tyler was driving, according to the CHP.
The man, and Tyler's passenger, a 41-year-old Kingsburg man, were killed.
