In memory of Dean St. PierreDean was my swimming instructor at the local YMCA and attended the
same church. He was a kind and decent person. I was terrified
of the water at first and he eventually taught me to be a strong
swimmer. So many of the things I have enjoyed in my life since
then have involved being on or around the water- I have often
thought how different my life might be if Dean hadn't taught me to
Dean was born in October 1941 to parents Harold and Lois.
Dean was MIA on May 22, 1968 in Quang Binh Province.
Aircraft wreckage that appears to be John and Dean's plane has been
Dean, I wish you were still with us.
To Linda, if you read this, I would be glad to hear from you.
