Huey Perry Dean of Homer fell asleep in death in the wee hours of the morning Saturday, November 18, 2023 with his loving wife of 25 years by his side. Lily was where she has always been since they married—right there with him helping him deal with whatever he had to do.
Huey was born October 11, 1930 in Claiborne Parish and lived the majority of his life in this place he loved. He was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 22, 1950. Because his religion encouraged Bible reading, he read the Bible often and it became his favorite book to read.
Huey loved to work, talk, and play dominoes. He instilled in his children the value of hard work. He made many friends through his love of playing dominoes. Because he loved to talk, he never met a stranger. If you talked with him long enough, he would share his love of the Bible with you and also share some of his favorite verses with you.
Huey is preceded in death by his parents: Jimmie T. and Irene Dean; 3 brothers: J.T. Jr., Albert, and Joe Dean; and 2 sisters: Dera Edwards and Mary Bryant. Also preceding him in death were his first wife and mother of his children: Lorene Dean, his grandson: Jonathan Dean; and granddaughters: Amy and Leah Dean.
Huey is survived by his wife of 25 years: Lily Dean who catered to his every wish. He also leaves behind his son Perry Dean and wife Nelda and his daughter Tricia Kleinman and husband Ronnie. He has 7 surviving grandchildren: Rachel Covey (Larry) and Matthew Dean, both of Shreveport; Samuel Dean of Haynesville; Kelli Sharpe (Shawn) of Martinsburg, West Virginia; Kasey Kleinman (Emily) of Hattiesburg, Mississippi; Kody Kleinman (Silvia) of Sacramento, California; Kelcey Kleinman (Chelsea) of Puyallup, Washington. He also leaves 13 great-grandchildren: Justin, Hayden, Zachary, Conner, Camren, Aaliyah, Isabella, Jakob, Dylann, Jackson, Pacey, Lorelai, and Noah. He has one surviving brother: Willie Dean (Carenell), 1 sister-in-law: Lynn Dean, and 1 brother-in-law: James Bryant.
He leaves behind many nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind 3 especially close friends: sister-in-law Nancy Partin, Remamae Bays, and Shealamae Dean; numerous friends he made during his lifetime; many family members who served Jehovah alongside him; and a worldwide family of spiritual brothers and sisters.
Huey lived most of his life as a servant of the Most High God Jehovah and eagerly looked forward to witnessing the end of this wicked world. He will be so excited when he wakes up in a Paradise earth and gets to live the fulfillment of his favorite Bible verses at Psalm 37:11, 29: “…the righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.”
In lieu of flowers, Huey would prefer to further the preaching of the “good news of God’s Kingdom” by donations to the Christian Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 900 Red Mills Road, Wallkill, NY 12589-5200, an organization that distributes Bibles and scriptural materials at no charge in 239 lands and 1,082 languages worldwide. Donations can also be made at donate.jw.org. More information about this Bible education work can be found at jw.org.
Pallbearers were Jakob Sharpe, Jackson Sharpe, Noah Kleinman, Hayden Dean, Zachary Patterson, and Justin Warren.
Huey's family would like to express their gratitude to the family and friends who were there for him throughout the years.
