Retired United States Air Force Vietnam veteran, H. Dean Kirkpatrick, passed away peacefully in his home on May 4, 2022, at the age of 72. Those who knew Dean well, knew him for his cheeky smile and distinct laugh. You would often find him amongst his lifelong friends drinking coffee, laughing, and chatting about the good ol'
days. Dean was very giving and always tried to make people laugh. It wasn't uncommon to find him answering FaceTime with an ape mask on, sending fake roaches in the mail, and generally clowning around.
He had a gift of gab and a love for both fishing and refurbishing Corvettes. His dream was to find a way to pull a bass boat with a 1964 Stingray Corvette to Navajo Lake while chatting about his semi-non professional bass
fishing career. His parents, both deceased, were Donald and Ermalee Kirkpatrick. He will be missed by his daughter, Brandi Kirkpatrick-Maurer and his 5 siblings, Dorene Keim, Tena Henderson, Don E. Kirkpatrick II, Terry Kirkpatrick, and Tammy Kirkpatrick. Dad/Dean, you will always be missed and loved by those who had the pleasure of
knowing you. Wherever you are now, may the engines be revving and the fish always biting.
Per his sibling's request, memorial services will not be held at this time.
