Dennis Dean

Dennis Paul Dean, 59, of Kimper, formerly of Red Jacket, W.Va., died Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at his residence.   

He was the son of the late Evelyn Steele Dean  and Sherlock Dean.

He was a retired coal miner.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one sister, Wendy Carter; two daughters, Heather Smith and Somer DeLynn Dean; and one grandson.

C. Dotson, Robert “Bubby” Dotson, Ryan Dotson and Liam Dotson; his special friends, Charles “Chuck” McCoy, Rick Chaney and Bobby Smith; plus Emily Hale, the daughter he never had, but loved dearly.

He will be greatly missed for his daily effort to make those around him laugh and see the good in every day. His passing will leave a void in those who knew him, as his pranks were well-known to all those blessed to have known him. He was often referred to as “snake man” by his daughter’s friends for his strategic placement of rubber snakes during sleepovers. He often chased those same friends with firecrackers and was constantly asking for a “bite of ear.” He was a protector, prankster and provider who always made those around him leave feeling as though they had the best days with him.
