Throughout his life, he was a dairy farmer raising Brown Swiss’ cattle and also raised Dorset sheep. Of course, his farm would not be complete without mention of his Allis-Chalmers tractors.

In his earlier years, Dean was employed at Hess & Clark.
Dean was a devoted member of the Southview Grace Brethren Church where he served faithfully on the church board and a Sunday School Teacher. He was a strong man of wisdom and led by example to share the gospel. Dean was a member of the Gideons, the Farmers Institute, a Butler Township Trustee, Crestview School Board member and the Adario Community Players Board for many years; and a lifetime memer of the Brown Swiss Cattle Breeders Association.
He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Mrs. Carolyn Glenn of Shiloh; one son, Scott (Paula) Glenn of League City, Texas; one daughter, Sherry (Neal) Smith of Glenford; two grandchildren, Andrew Glenn and Kassandra Krebs; two step grandsons, Dante and Pascal Lombardo; two brothers, Robert (Marilyn) Glenn of Mansfield and Dr. Theodore (Janice) Glenn of Nankin; one sister, Kathy DeLozier of Mansfield; a brother-in-law, Clark Sprague of Bowling Green; numerous nieces and nephews; and his canine companion, Shep.
