Born on October 22, 1944, in Petersburg, MI, Dean was the son of Ralph and Opal Jacobs. He was a graduate of Bedford High School and proudly served his country during the Vietnam War.
After he was discharged, he met the love of his life, Rosemary Ziegler, and they married in 1978. Together they enjoyed going out to eat and Honkey Tonkin’ (dancing) on the weekends. Dean enjoyed old movies, music, playing euchre, and spending time with his wife, his little rose bud.

Despite being in pain, he stayed strong until the end. Dean will always be remembered by his kind eyes and infectious smile.
