Dean was born September 24, 1943 to Charles and Rosaline (Haynes) Sharp in Marshalltown, IA. He graduated from Beaman-Conrad High School in 1961. Dean was united in marriage to LaDonna Schiebel on November 23, 1963 in Conrad and was a member of the Conrad United Methodist Church. He was a former member of the Conrad Volunteer Fire Department and the Conrad Cemetery Board. He engaged in farming his entire life and was happy to have his son and grandson follow in his footsteps. Dean was proud to participate in Tractorcade in 1979, where he flew to Washington D.C. to lobby for increased crop prices. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, especially his many "safety meetings" at the shop.

And please remember, as Dean always said, "Have a little fun every day!"

LaDonna and family,
It has been many years since I last spoke with Dean, but the memories of our high school time together are still very special to me. He was truly a guy that put his whole heart into the tasks and situations he found himself in. His word could always be counted on as sure and golden. Your family has inherited a special legacy from him that is very special. Blessings to you and yours at this difficult time in life.

I have known Dean since we started kindergarten together and graduated in 1961. WhenI I got word of his passing many fond memories of growing up together came roaring back. Things we did that I hadn't thought about for some time and their return brought joy to my heart. My condolences and sympathy go out to his family and all who's life he touched. Dean will be missed as he was truly "one of the good guys!"
Thinking of you all at this time and prayers for peace and comfort.
