Robert Edward Dean, the oldest of two sons born to the late Lucille and Willie Dean was born on November 10, 1924 in Clinton, South Carolina. He quietly departed this life on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at the Serenity Manor Assistant Living.
Robert attended elementary school in Clinton. At approximately 10 years of age, Robert and his family relocated to Baltimore where he continued his education. After graduating from the Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, Robert enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he served in World War II. He was Honorably Discharged with the rank of Sergeant in 1944. Robert reenlisted in the Marines in 1950 and was Honorably Discharged in 1952. Robert owned a radio and television repair business for a while but primarily worked as an electrician.
Robert enjoyed learning and continued his studies by attending many classes at various colleges, technical schools and seminars. His hobby was reading until he lost his sight but that did not deter him from learning. Robert continued studying by listening to books on tape from the library for the blind. He enjoyed mathematics, science, world history and world affairs.
Robert leaves to remember him his daughters, Auria (Harry), Deborah (Walter), son, Nathan Dean, niece, Beverly Smith of Pittsburgh, PA., nephew, Brooks Dean of Charlotte, NC., grandchildren, Troy Dean Sr. and Danyelle Stewart, two great-grandchildren, Troy Jr. and Paris Dean and a great-grandson, Zion Evans. He will also be remembered by his former spouse, Annabelle L. Tiggle and extended family, which includes his adopted family, the staff and clients of Serenity Manor Assisted Living. He would like to especially thank two nurses, Ebony and Bridgette for the love and genuine concern shown during his stay.
