Samuel Roland Dean

December 13, 1992 - September 26, 2016

** Candle light vigil at Gray’s Lake in DesMoines will be held Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 7:00 P.M.

Samuel Roland Dean, 23, left this world far too soon on Monday, September 26, 2016.

Sam was born in Des Moines, on December 13, 1992, to Steven and Nicolette Dean. He will be remembered for his big heart, quick-wit, contagious smile, headstrong ways, and larger-then-life character. Sam was an avid sports fan and had an ability to make everyone he met feel special- just by being himself. Sam’s passing has created a huge void in the lives of all that knew and loved him.

Sam is survived by his parents, Steven and Nicolette Dean; siblings, Armand, Roman, and Giavanna (GiGi); grandparents, Charles and Nancy Noyes; as well as a large extended family and many close friends.

Sam was preceded in death by grandparents Sam and Yolanda Dean.

Funeral Mass will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at St. Anthony Catholic church, 15 Indianola Road, Des Moines.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family for a cause close to Sam’s heart.

The brightest flames burn out the fastest- Sam will be dearly missed.
