On Monday, September 17, 2018, George Grant Dean, 75, of Rouses Point took that lighted, peaceful walk through the gates of Heaven and was finally embraced by our Lord and Savior.
George fought a courageous battle with Parkinson’s Disease for many years. He moved to Rouses Point up until eight years ago, when he relocated himself to the Meadowbrook Nursing Facility in Plattsburgh, where he lived out the remainder of his days. While at Meadowbrook, he was treated with kindness and received excellent care from all staff members.
In his younger days, George owned and operated his own garbage removal business. After selling his business years later, he bagean working at Wyeth-Ayerst until his retirement in 2001. George loved to go hunting, fishing and camping. He often would be seen sitting with his buddies, drinking a beer, and watching the car races. He was an avid Yankees fan and never missed a game on television.
George is survived by his son, Grant, daughter-in-law, Jennifer, and a granddaughter, Kora. He also leaves behind a close, loyal friend to the end, Ricky Jenkins, who never missed a Sunday visit. George was predeceased by his father Edward, his mother Wilma, and an older brother Edward.
At George’s request, there will be no calling hours or funeral Mass. At the family’s convenience, he will be brought to Canada to be laid to rest in his family plot. George had many friends and will be remembered fondly. Donations may be made in George’s name to either the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, or to Meadowbrook Healthcare Facility. Arrangements are in the care of M. B. Clark Funeral Home in Champlain.
