Dean was born in Lewiston, Idaho to Marge Burnett and Gary Ells. He is survived by his sisters,
Donna Johnson of Modesto and Debbie Barker of Washington. Dean was a long time resident of Denair Manor in Turlock. Dean was well known for his love of animals. Although confined to a wheelchair, Dean befriended every dog in a two mile radius. They loved him too, “they know I roll with treats!”
He was the puppy pied piper of Turlock. Dean leaves behind many friends and fellow residents feeling his absence profoundly. He was our family. There will be many happy souls waiting at the Rainbow Bridge! All of Dean’s four legged friends will be there to escort him home. To quote Dean, “Peace Out My Brother !” God’s speed, R.I.P.
