A Favorite Place: Hanging Rock State Park. Dean was born just next to this state park. Some of his ancestors and Grandmother, who was part Cherokee, walked all around this mountain area. Two uncles helped to build the State Park facilities in the early 20th century.
Lots of wonderful, outdoor spaces in Stokes County!!
Faith & Family
Dean loves the Lord Jesus Christ and family & friends! Dean is married, and they have five wonderful children. He and his wife committed to going overseas as missionaries after college when they were married. A few years later they lived out a huge life goal of going to Tanzania, East Africa, and working for several years. Now after being back home in North Carolina they are blessed to see their children graduating and launching their careers and growing up.
Dean has a heart for rural development. He has started companies and helped to develop other businesses and do new product development in rural Stokes County. Rural areas needed innovative thinking along with cherished values.
Dean enjoys developing businesses that are rewarding and profitable, and developing new products. He has been privileged to work with creative and talented people.
He likes inventing, design, creating things and investing in others. Dean just started Kayaking, and likes hiking and biking as well as camping, and fishing!!
Real Fun stuff!!
"Hanging Rock State Park entrance is approx. 13 miles northeast from my house and to top of Pilot Mountain is about 12 miles west.
I enjoy HIKING & WALKING and just being with family. Living back home in Stokes County is like having a VACATION in my BACK YARD." dw
just get on a bike and find a quiet trail .....somewhere, away with family!!
