Richard Dean

By September 25, 2014 Obituaries

 Richard was my loving husband of 25 years. I am so grateful to have had him in my life. I am truly blessed to have known what true love is and will forever miss my best friend, my soul mate, and my “happy”. Richard loved being a father to Austin and Garret. His sons were his greatest pride and joy. Family was the most important thing to him. He leaves behind his sister Mary D. Shaw, his brother Ray Dean, my parents Robert and Ingrid Hunt, sister in law Michele Bridgers, brother and sister in law Greg and Jen Hunt, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles . Over the years, he enjoyed coaching baseball as well.  All of the players and parents were special to him. He will be greatly misses by us. May he rest in peace with God, his parents, and family.

A memorial service will be held in Richard’s honor on October 3, 2014 from 12-1pm at Simplicity: Lowcountry Cremation & Burial Services (7475 Peppermill Parkway Suite E North Charleston, SC 29418). Memorial contributions may be made to the family and sent to P.O. Box 31432 Charleston, SC 29417.

  • Ruth Dean says:

    Myself, Austin & Garret would like to thank simplicity low country funeral services as well as numerous family and friends for making Richards memorial service so special. All the love and support brings comfort to our hearts during our time of loss. A special thank you to hospice of charleston as well. Sadly, we would have celebrated our 25th anniversary today. I think of how blessed I was to have such a sweet, loving husband and father to our sons in my life. For this I am forever grateful to God. Richard, my love for you is eternal. May you rest in peace until I see your beautiful face again one day.
