    My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

    Never met him personally but we exchanged messages a couple of times. He was so nice, funny, and very helpful.

    Farewell, uncle. We will miss you.

    I spent many times talking to Dean about many different things. One that I remember most was the loss of his son! He dearly dearly missed him.........Not any more, as Dean is with him now.

    Oh man, this just saddens me so much its beyond words. Dean was such an awesome person. Hell, I was suppose to try and make it out to see him this year some time. Offered me a place to stay and we were going to go to dinner and hang out.

    This so brings tears to my eyes. Oh man, Dean, you will be missed dearly my friend!

    He is one of several great friends I never meet in person!

    R.I.P. my dear friend!
    Irony and Mindweaver say thanks.

    I didn't know him because I'm new here but damn, 54. Way too young. I know how him family feels right now because my dad died when I was 10.
    He must be precious member of this community. Condolences.

    Wow, Kreij... I remember some time ago he sent me a 17" LCD monitor for nothing. I know he's done similar things for other members as well... he was a selfless individual and he always had a sense of humor about everything. He will be sorely missed here at TPU... :(

    Man, I'm not even 20 and I've known so many people that have died of cancer. 54 is not enough. He was a good guy. He was one of those writers that you could tell would be a cool person to talk to.

    There's a cure for cancer. Its only a matter of time till we get to it

    If there's an afterlife, Kreij is well-received. Rest in peace.
