He married Sheryl (Sher) Smock November 22, 1969 at Immaculate Conception Church in New Richmond, WI and went on to have three children.

He is survived by his siblings, John (MaryAnn) Dean, Patricia (Rick) Casey, and Colleen (Salvatore) Lovinello. Children, Michelle Dean, Shaun (Jennifer) Dean and Patrick (Florence) Dean.
