Dean was born on Nov. 24, 1952, in Freeport, Illinois. He was the son of Nathan and Frieda (Meinert) Kubly. He was raised in Davis, Illinois and he received his education in Dakota, Illinois. Dean was a graduate of the Dakota High School Class of 1971.

Dean entered active military service in the United States Air National Guard. He was stationed stateside for three years until his Honorable Discharge.

After his stint in the Guard, he had taken work cleaning at a bakery. One day while cleaning ovens the chemical cleaner ignited, badly burning his retinas. He was unable to work ever since. On Sept. 7, 1996, Dean was united in marriage to Beth at Kohler-Andrae State Park in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. They shared 20 years of marriage. They moved to Montana in 2007, making this their forever home. He was in awe every time he took in the majesty of the beautiful surroundings of our area.

Dean loved to tinker on cars and was very mechanical. If you were ever over visiting, he probably offered to do a quick oil change on your car while you visited.

Blessed be his memory.

Dean is survived by his loving wife, Beth; his children, Nate Kubly, Amy Becker, and Janey Marinaro; six grandchildren; and one great-granddaughter. He was also survived by his siblings Nancy, Dawn and Dewey, along with nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

Dean was preceded in death by his parents, Nathan and Frieda Kubly.
