Michael Shane Dean
Michael Shane Dean ,67, of Ashland, Ky. and Prichard, W.Va., went home to be with his Lord on December 4, 2019, at the Cleveland Clinic.
No more pain and sorrow, the Lord has healed him.
Michael was born March 5, 1952, in Ashland, Ky. He was the son of McKinley Dean and Hellen Browning Dean.
Michael graduated from Boyd County High School and Ashland Vocational School in electronics. He was a retired maintenance mechanic from Calgon Carbon Corporation, where he worked with his many friends for 33 years. He was the last charter member attending Wayside Missionary Baptist Church. He loved his church and actively did all he could to further the Lord's work until his health declined drastically. He taught Sunday School, led the music, drove the church van, was a trustee, and the treasurer. He will be greatly missed.
Michael enjoyed bowling, camping, fishing trips to Lake Gaston and Guntersville Lake and his local Greenbo Bass Club tournaments. We all enjoyed the telling of his many tales, tall or not.
Michael was preceded in death by his parents McKinley and Hellen Dean; his in-laws, Frank and Elinor (Nor) Olmstead; a son Todd Dean; two brothers-in-law, Richard (Butch) Kiger and Leonard Alexander.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Camille; his sons, Tony (Alissa) of Russell, Ky., John Lee (Jessica) of Sylva, N.C.; six grandchildren, Gabriel, Maci, Averi, Lilia, Jonah, and Adam; two brothers, Eric of Ocala, Fla., and Mark (Vicki) of Lawrenceville, Ga.; three sisters, Nancy Kiger, Melody Meade (David), and Michele Alexander all of Ashland, Ky.; aunt Ella Mae Browning, and Mindy Turner of Yucaipa, Calif. There are many nieces and nephews who will miss their Uncle Mike and his instructions on fishing.
Thank you to the host of wonderful brothers and sisters in the Lord who have faithfully lifted Michael up to the Lord during his illness, with their prayers and their church's prayers lists. Thank you all so very much. Visitation for Michael will be held Monday December 9, 2019, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Preston Family Funeral Home in Ashland, and from 10 a.m. to service time at 11 a.m. at the church. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday, December 10, 2019, at Wayside Missionary Baptist Church with Brother Dewey McCarty Officiating. Arrangements are under the direction of Preston Family Funeral Home in Ashland.
