Arnold and Gladys were blessed with children Janice Mae and Arnold Dean Jr.; grandchildren Sarah, David, and Daniel, Tyler, Emily, Lauren and Justin; great-grandchildren Isabella, Lilyana, Bennett, Sophia, Ezra, William, Esther, Elena and Micah.

His home going service will be held at the Helmar Lutheran Church 11935 Lisbon Road on August 29 at 11:00 am.  Burial will follow at the Helmar cemetery. You may greet the family after the burial back at the church.  In lieu of flowers, memorials to further the Lord’s work would be appreciated.
