Dean was born on February 26, 1948 in Frederic, WI to Gordon A. and Marjorie Anderson. He graduated from Frederic High School in 1966. He was an over-the-road truck driver for 25 years enjoying the scenery and sights all over the United States, where he met, fell in love with and married Terry. For the last 23 years he worked as a foreman for Lessard/Nyren Utilities, then Mastec in Hugo, MN, retiring earlier this year.
Dean had an undeniable love for the game of Hockey, which he enjoyed watching professional as well as his son, grandson, and the rest of his hockey boys on the ice at the Burnett Youth Hockey Arena in Siren. He was also a board member for many years supporting and maintaining the rink. It didnt take long for Dean to realize he was a hockey dad at heart. He loved to go and watch all of the grandkids play their various sports, whether it was basketball, football, or hockey. He loved their camper on Yellow Lake and couldnt wait every spring to start opening things up and enjoying his morning coffee with friends on the deck with the sunshine and amazing view of the lake. He also enjoyed taking up the river pontoon rides and spending the afternoon surrounded by friends and family celebrating the day. He loved hunting season every year with his Dad in earlier years, and later his boys with frequent stops to enjoy homemade meatloaf sandwiches and a bowl of chili.
