Larry Steve Dean

Date Of Birth: 12-03-1949
Date Deceased: 08-22-2015

Steve attended Mark Smith when the doors first opened. He later earned a GED, after attending Dudley Hughes. He loved to work with his hands, and could fix anything, especially cars and houses. He had a heart for those in need, and a love for his Savior, Jesus Christ. He had a musician's ear, and could name a car by listening to the motor blindfolded. He loved any kind of motor and all tools. He was incredibly strong, and never lost a fist fight. He enjoyed riding his Harley, sports, traveling, using his tractor, building things, doing anything in his shop, eating good food (especially meat), having a cold beer, and listening to lusty loud southern rock music. He was very affectionate, preferring to spoon while he slept, and is sorely missed.
