  14. Dean was a person of the highest level of skill and integrity in his personal life and as an attorney. His law firm was highly respected by attorneys and clients alike. He and I discussed laws related to wills and trusts, but I never expected estate planning to apply to him this early in his life. He was a pillar in our community and will be missed by many. I am sorry to see him go.

    My condolences to his wife, children and family.

  20. I knew Dean from being one of his clients, an amazing guy. I’m totally at a loss of words I went on google to search him again to call him about some business and came across this. To the family I’m sorry for your loss, he was an amazing gentleman very patient. Awesome at his job. My prayer go out his family God bless.

  21. I am so sorry to hear about this. I just referred a family member to Dean and was calling him about question for our family. I’m just shocked and heart-broken for your family. Dean was our family estate attorney, and a professor of min at UH for the CFP certification. We really liked his sarcasm and dry-sense of humor. Just an all-around wonderful man. Praying you make sense of it all and God comfort you in the process

  22. I am so very heartbroken to learn that Dean has passed. He was a wonderful attorney and helped me whenever I needed him. I’ll never forget the surprise I felt when he sent me a balloon bouquet to me when I was suddenly hospitalized with a serious illness. I still think about his kindness 5 years later … how that one small act of concern helped me to heal.

    I send my love and sympathy to his family. May his memory always be a blessing.
