George M. DEAN, 83, of Hebron Center, Coudersport, PA, died Monday, January 31, 2022 in Lakeview Senior Care and Living Center, Smethport.

Born March 26, 1938, in Tyler, Elk County, he was the son of Meldon C. and Hannah A. Lewis Dean.  Throughout his life, he had many adventures and lived many places.  From the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, he resided in Arizona, Florida, Tennessee, New York, and Colorado, with much of his life spent in Pennsylvania and Tennessee.  In 2020, he came back to Pennsylvania to be close to his family. He was a farmer for many years, trucker, mechanic, horse trainer, and storyteller.  Stories of his youth and his family were always entertaining and exciting to listen to.  A man of many talents, he enjoyed welding, yodeling, and leather working, just to name a few.  With just as many hobbies, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time outdoors around a campfire.

Surviving are:  four children, George Golish, Mark Dean, Hayden Dean, and Georgiana Dean;  grandchildren, Timothy S. Shaffer, Sarah Short, Dawn Shaffer, Paul Golish, Jessica Roupp, Justin Outman, Austin Outman, April Outman, Jeremiah Dean, and Merle Golish;  many great- grandchildren;  nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by two daughters, Evelyn Y.
