Dean was united in marriage to LaDonna Schiebel on November 23, 1963 in Conrad and was a member of the Conrad United Methodist Church. He was a former member of the Conrad Volunteer Fire Department and the Conrad Cemetery Board. He engaged in farming his entire life and was happy to have his son and grandson follow in his footsteps. Dean was proud to participate in Tractorcade in 1979, where he flew to Washington D.C. to lobby for increased crop prices. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, especially his many “safety meetings” at the shop.
