Dean Duane Drake
January 16, 1945 – June 11, 2023
Dean was born, lived, and passed in Dexter. Those that knew him, knew that he lived life simply, privately, and on his terms. Family was always first and foremost to him, he did what he thought was best for those he loved, and fiercely defended them. We thank him for the love, strength, and softness he gave us.
