Dean infected all those around him with positive feelings. His infectious smile, his positive outlook, his great work ethic and the love he expressed whenever he talked about his family.
When the Sharks were in the playoffs a few years ago, I remember spotting Dean wearing a huge Sharks jersey. All I could think was Dean was one dedicated fan! It made me want to express my support more for my teams by wearing their garb at work. Dean broke the ice for me and taught me a lesson about dedication, whether its work, sports or home.
Thanks Dean. You are one of a kind.
