Jackie "Jack" Dean Obituary

SALEM – Jack Dean, 76, was born in Moorehead, Kentucky on December 22, 1946. He passed away unexpectedly Thursday morning, September 28, 2023, at Salem Regional Medical Center in Salem, Ohio, from an acute cardiac attack with complications from Hypertension, Diabetes, and Dementia.

He served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.

Jack worked in the steel, pipeline, and railroad industries for years, then he mainly focused on home and automotive repairs... A True "Jack of All Trades.”  He was always there to lend a helping hand to those in need and could fix or rebuild almost anything.

In his spare time Jack enjoyed playing golf, although he would confess, he was no good at it. He was also a member of the Salem Club, AMVETS and Eagles.

Jack leaves his wife Rachel E. (Foddrill, Atkins, Worrell) Dean whom he married November 21, 1987, one brother, Jerry (Bev) Dean; three nieces, Nicole (Marty) Dean-Hernandez, Natalie Dean, and Chelsea Hall; two nephews, Joseph (Tiffany) Dean and Eddie (Mandi) Kuhn; five great nieces Shayla Mezo-Llano, Taylor Kuhn, Teanna Dean, Aleeah Dean and Brooklyn; five great nephews, Troy Bitterle, MJ Hernandez, Wyatt Dean, Tyler Dean and Dominic Kuhn; one great-great nephew, Manolo; two stepdaughters, Beth A. of Alliance, OH, and Karin W. of Warren, OH; one stepson, Kevin W. of Laredo, TX; eight step-grandchildren, Ashley, Rebecca, Michael, Kahlia, Damon, Israel, Edward, Elizabeth; and four step-great grandchildren, Chloe, Ellie, Mark (MJ), and Preston.

He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Emma (Easterling) Dean; one brother, Eddie Dean; his first wife, Dorothy (Whittaker) Dean; one aunt, Bonnie Williams; five uncles, Earnest, Glen, Jimmy, Vergil, infant, Pete Jackson Easterling; and one step-grandson, Cory B.
