Dean loved his time at Deep Lake, spending all his spare time at the Cabin where he fished and worked on the property. He always made time to take the kids water skiing and fishing. He spent his weekends at the cabin making friends and telling stories under the thinking bush. Everyone was welcome at the cabin.
