David Dean was born on August 23, 1956 at Presidio Army Post in San Francisco, CA to Martin Dean and Sandra Ralston.

In his youth, David enjoyed going to the park and the bowling alley. He spent a lot of time running around with his brothers and getting into mischief. David worked at the local grocery store and enlisted in the Army National Guard after leaving school.

David loved rock and roll music. He walked all over town and could be seen singing to his music and using his walking stick as an air guitar. Dave also loved fishing, football, and spending time with friends and family. He was an avid reader. He loved science fiction and Stephen King novels. But his pride and joy was his family; his siblings, his sons, his grandkids and his dog, Lily.
