On Easter Monday 2018, the unthinkable happened. Dean; a talented musician, brother, son, partner and a beautiful father, was suddenly and silently taken from us.
Dean suffered from a rare blood condition which caused his blood to clot. Dean managed his condition over the last 5 years, although there were many complications. On the 2nd April 2018 whilst out for lunch with his partner he suffered an internal haemorrhage. Emergency crews worked tirelessly to save him, but he was not able to be revived.
Dean leaves behind a shocked and grieving close knit family, a community of beloved friends & Mik Mak fans, and most importantly, his 4 year old son, Max.
We have set up this fundraising page solely for little Max to help support him and give him the best life we possibly can.
Not only will this assist with his schooling & further education, but will also provide for the little things such as; the guitar and the guitar lessons that Dean would be oh so proud of, the footy boots - just like his Dads, the birthday parties, christmas presents, trips to the zoo & football games. All the things we know Dean would have wanted for his gorgeous little boy Max.
We thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts for supporting Max, every cent will go directly to a trust fund for him.
(Money raised from this campaign will go into a family trust- Dean's brothers Brian, Joel & Al are trustees with Max being sole beneficiary)
