Dean enjoyed running half marathons, full marathons, warrior dashes, and local races.
Dean was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic melanoma in June 2013, the year after he ran the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in Nashville, TN.
Dean loved being a father to his two beautiful young daughters.
Being from Maryland, Dean was a huge Raven's fan! Here he is with his wife, Deana, whom he loved and adored very much.
Here they are cheering on the Ravens!
The Ravenous Race name was inspired by Dean's love of his favorite football team.
