    As we all know, Dean had a big heart, a very quick mind, and a great sense of humor. He also came from a family of highly accomplished outdoorsmen.

    He gave me his insight once on campfires. He said, “the Indian builds a small fire and sits up close. White men build a big fire and sit way back”. Then came is big smile and his booming laugh. Forty years later, that memory still makes me smile.

    Dean built a life of big fires, and his warmth and light brightened the lives of the hundreds of people that claimed him as one of their best friends. Dean, we are all better off for knowing you. You will be sorely missed my friend.

    Our deepest condolences to the Lammers clan during this most difficult time.
