Dean graduated from Benton High School, class of 1946.
Dean was a long time member of Millville United Methodist Church and could always be found in the kitchen at every social function. Dean and Barbara participated in mission activities traveling to Red Bird Mission in Kentucky.

Dean was a hardworking, loyal employee at Bakers Economy Store and Locker Plant for 30 years. He competed in meat smoking and curing events through American Association of Meat Processors and won several awards.
After retiring from the meat packing business, Dean drove Millville School District bus for 32 years, including, his favorite part, transporting the sports teams.
A more dedicated Phillies fan would be hard to find. He faithfully wore his Phillies hat and welcomed any opportunity to talk baseball.
Dean was a pillar of service in the Millville community. He was involved with the Millville Fire Company, Fire Police and carnival support. When the fire siren sounded, he jumped into action, directing traffic at the square and rarely did a night at the carnival pass without hearing “Dean Evans, ice needed at the church stand” or “ Dean Evans, needed at the hamburger stand”
Dean, Daddy Dean, was a kind, sweet man, a wonderful husband, father and grandfather and will be greatly missed by his family and all who were privileged to call him a friend.
