Brian Dean's Funeral & Support Fund

Our beloved brother, uncle and friend was suddenly and tragically taken from all of us on Monday, February 12. Brian was visiting his oldest brother in California when he was rushed to the hospital and passed away, just 6 days shy of his 46th birthday.

He leaves behind his brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and countless family and friends. Most importantly, his twin brother Craig, who has been his companion and best friend since birth.

We want to ease the financial burden that comes with losing someone so suddenly. This memorial fund will help to take care of funeral services, burial, and perhaps help establish a small nest egg to heal Craig's broken heart.

Any donation, no matter how small is greatly appreciated. On behalf of the entire Dean family, we thank you with all of our hearts.

** For those inquiring about memorial services and more information, know that Brian's family is working tirelessly with San Bernardino County to complete his autopsy and get him home to Illinois as swiftly as possible. Funeral date and time TBD, expected early March. The family will release more information as it becomes available.
