My deepest sympathy with the family and regrets of his passing. Dean was my classmate of 1979 at Sumter High School. He was very caring and an amazing individual during the 40th class reunion of Sumter High. He demonstrated his talent from God with beauty in decorating the event with form, shape, and fashion. I will always remember Dean who energized classmates to have a good event with laughter and happiness several years ago. He will be missed dearly. I thank God for sharing him with Class of 1979.

Dean was an amazing person! He came to support our store on several occasions and I always loved getting a chance to work with him. He always taught me something new and it meant so much that he would take the time to show me different ways to do my work. He loved doing things for our company and was so proud of that, when he would visit my store I loved our talks and getting to see what new projects he was working on. I'm gonna miss you tons!

I did not know Dean well but have some great memories with him at Pride with TJ Maxx. He was unbelievably thoughtful and genuinely cared for people. He will be missed.
