Larry Glennon Dean, 72, of Deltaville died at home with his wife and son nearby on Monday, August 31, 2020.

He was predeceased by his parents, Thomas Lonnie Dean and LaFay Colquitt Dean; and a sister, Irene Dean Lee, all of Oklahoma. He is survived by his wife, Carter Norton Dean, of Deltaville; his son, Anderson Colquitt Dean; daughter-in-law, Alix; and two adored granddaughters, Helen and Ruth, all of Santa Fe, N.M.; and his sister, Lorene Dean Bridges of Blanchard, OK.

Larry Dean grew up in Blanchard, OK, where he loved to roam a neighboring field watching small mammals and reptiles and finding old buffalo wallows. He attended Oklahoma State University before joining the U.S. Army, serving in Vietnam and in Germany. He stayed in Germany after discharge from the service because he loved the country and following the Gran Prix circuit all over Europe.

He returned to live in New Orleans, where he and Carter met. His career from then on was in hi-fi audio sales and marketing. Music was his passion. He also loved being on the open water of the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. He enjoyed making wonderful food on his Big Green Egg, working with wood, volunteering at the Deltaville Maritime Museum, spending time with his dogs, reading Ernest Hemingway, Kurt Vonnegut and physics; communicating with old Army friends on Facebook; and being Pop Pop to two beautiful grand-girls.

A uniquely kind and honest man, Larry Dean remains in the memories of those who loved him.

Larry was a wonderful man. I loved doing business with him for many years and his mellow nature and complete honesty was what made seeing him for meetings a true pleasure. So sorry to hear the news. Carter I hope you are doing ok. He was a great man. Sincerely, Jon Meyer

I am profoundly saddened by Larry’s passing, a beacon of light and sanity in our crazy Consumer Electronics world. I echo Fred’s sentiments, he was a role model for me back in the late seventies when we briefly worked together in DC. He transitioned into the manufacture’s repping side of our business and was a fixture in Baltimore DC metro area for many years. I will never forget his great sense of humor, shrewd judge of character, and infectious laugh. Rest In Peace old friend.

I’ve just learned of Larry’s passing. I’m truly sorry for the family’s loss. Larry was such a defining influence on my career. He was my first manager to recruit me into the CE industry some 43 years ago. Frankly, Larry’s passion for his profession and incredble knowledge & understanding of our industry infused the same passion in me too. I genuinely thought that Larry personified the best of what we do.
He’s going to be sorely missed by so many! We can only aspire to be the kindly mentors and ambassadors of CE that Larry had been to so many. Rest in Peace, old friend! We’ll meet again some day!

Larry was like the grandfather I never had. My grandparents really never paid attention to me or were a huge part of my life. Larry and Carter took me in like I was their own and always looked out for me. Larry was so special and so kind. He made me into a better woman and taught me so many things. I miss him every day and just wish I could talk to him one more time. I just pray that he is watching over me and his wonderful wife.

Love always,
