Jake Rick Dean (Jaylan)
July 26, 1999 – February 24, 2018
6,788 days – 18 years, 6 months, 29 days – 162,912 hours
Jake was suddenly taken from us at 7:30 a.m. on February 24, 2018. He was walking on Highway 12 south towards Martensville because his truck got stuck in the ditch. He had walked quite a ways and was close to Martensville when a vehicle hit him from behind.
Jake is survived by his mom, Jaedean Mitchell; his sister, Cassandra Dean; his step dad Shane Gronvold; his maternal grandparents, Ethel and Alan Murray; his cousins Chris and Melanie Dziki. His brother, Mitchell, died April 23, 2003.
Jake’s beloved cats will miss him dearly, Henry, Elmer, Ellie, Emma, Leonard and Murphy. He always said his cats were his buds. Every day those cats received so many hugs and kisses. He had to kiss each one when he left for work.
Jake enjoyed his video games to de-stress and loved his 2 -7.3 Ford Diesels, his 6.0 Ford and his Dodge Dakota. He was quite the collector. He also had plans to refurbish a 1968 Fargo with Shane.
Jake was a loyal friend. He loved hanging out with his ‘bros’. Jake could spin a story and could always make everyone laugh. His pit parties were legendary.
Jake spent a lot of time at home with mom, driving, talking, and just being in the same room, but managed to pack in numerous exciting experiences in his 6,788 days.
