Dean Robert Bright



We found out on Wednesday that my cousin Dean was killed in action in Iraq.

Dean was a great person who always made me feel welcome.

He was the one who was always smiling, always laughing.

Dean leaves behind his wife Becky, his two children Jarrod 9 and Maddie 6, his parents Uncle Bob and Aunt Norma, his sister Sandra. He also had uncles, aunts, cousins, neices and nephews who will all miss him greatly.

I remember being there when Becky and Dean got married. He was so happy. So excited.

Then I went away and joined the military.

I didn't see him again for several years but when I did he and Becky welcomed us and our kids into their home.

We were there to clebrate our grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary.

God needed him up in Heaven. The strong heart he must have had to fight for his country to keep us all free. You will see him in glory and I will pray that God restores his wife's heart to a peaceful state. God Blees S'te

We have been blessed to know him and to have been a part of his life. I haven't seen him in years but fondly remember him in his childhood. I was always glad to hear news of him vis friends and relatives or even via the grapevine. He will be greatly missed.

Dear S'te..
First let me offer my condolences for the loss of your cousin Dean Bright. I did not know him, however by all accounts he seems like a man I would have been proud and honored to know.

I am a Bright and wonder if we are related. I know of a relative named Zeno Bright...any connection?
