Dean was a member of The Vineyard Church. He volunteered in the Sunday school preschool room and this would leave such a smile on his face after being with the little ones. The Vineyard Church was Dean’s family as he was part of a life group within the church. Dean found his belonging through the Vineyard Church and families there. His love was overwhelming.
Those that are left to honor him are his wife Cheri (Zimmerman), daughter Erin (Damien) Koehn of Mc Causland, son Dexter (Keri) of Le Claire, Iowa, his parents Darrel and Donna Dahlin of Princeton, Iowa, brother Douglas Dahlin of Davenport, Iowa, and sister Dyannae (Tim) Ruser of Princeton, Iowa, a very special Mother-in-Law, Ruby Carter, Clinton, Iowa, and a friend that was like a daughter, Kerri Shook of Davenport, Iowa, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Dean is preceded in death by a brother, David, and both sets of grandparents. His family will miss him immensely but knows he is in Gods Paradise.
In lieu of plants and flowers a fund has been set up in the name of Dean’s Fight that donations can be made to at Deere Harvester Credit Union, 5354 Elmore Circle, Davenport, IA.
