He was a member of Pleasant Grove Church in Mill Spring.  Dean was also in the US Army during Viet Nam and received two Purple Hearts. He lived a colorful full life, fighting a war and serving his country. From teaching his children to swim by tossing them into the river with a smile and sink or swim, playing music with surviving members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, to recording a record, to shaving his beard for a nervous 5 year old, to telling whoppers, to collecting old cars, to riding Harley’s. George was awesome!
