So very sorry to learn of Dean's passing. Thoughts and prayers extended to Nell, Deb, David, Diane, Kathy, Sharon, Terry, and Randy. Dean was a wonderful man that brought much happiness to those he loved. While losing him is so sad, he is now free of the ills that had taken over his earthly body, and he is now able to clearly keep a watchful eye over all of you. God Bless! 😔

Dear Miller & Tennery Family, My deepest sympathy and condolences to you on the loss of such a wonderful man. Due to prior commitments, I was unable to pay my respects in person and Dean was a man that deserved respect. He was one of the kindest, gentlest, most loving persons that I have had the privilege of knowing. He loved his step children & grand children unconditionally as well as all of his family. His company was always such a pleasure because of his keen sense of humor and his loving demeanor. He is in a better place, but the world is a little more dim without Dean's light.
