Dean Edward Martin

Dean Edward Martin age 59 of Jacksboro, TN passed away after a long fought battle with cancer to his heavenly home on Wednesday, June 3, 2015. Named by our mother based on her love for the famous crooner from the 50s, our brother embraced the constant kidding with humor. He was one of the funniest, kindest souls you would ever want to meet.

Dean Martin - One of my favorite cousins. Every summer was spent together while our dads fished. I visited Dean a year or so ago when I was in Tennessee and loved him as much then as when we were kids. I am sorry for your loss Aunt Opal, Ricky, Denise and Keith. Dean was his own man and one you can be proud to say was your son, dad and brother. Rest in peace dear cousin

So thankful for the many sweet memories of growing up with Dean. As one of my many cousins we shared a special bond because of so many great childhood outings along side our wonderful parents, so many great camping trips and times together with family. Dean was indeed a kind, sweet soul with a tender heart filled with love and respect for his friends and family. His desire was to do good and to render kindness to others. I am thankful that Dean has been a part of my life and that by his own testimony, he is now with our Lord. Love and Prayers, Kaye
