Dear Maxine and Family,
In my many trips from SLC to Richfield to visit my mother when I was driving through Salina, Dee always came into my mind. I really wished I had taken the time to stop and chat with him.
Dee and I worked on the South Local RR job I always looked forward to going to work with him. He made it a fun job. Dee backed me in my Union Jobs and was a good Union man. He will be missed by many of us RR guys. My thoughts are with yoou at this time. Kim Madsen

We are saddened by Dee''s passing. Not only is it the end of an era, but the loss of a really
great guy. Paul has great memories of working with Dee on the D&RGW Railroad. He
remembers Dee working with his Grandfather on the same railroad. Meeting up @ family
events and railroad functions. We love the wooden sleigh and reindeer he made us and
display it every Christmas. He will be missed by us.
Love Paul and Lori Callaway

Dear Maxine and Deann, We were sadden to hear of Uncle Dee's passing. We have a fond remembrance of him allowing us to store our furniture in your basement. Uncle Dee always had a heart-warming smile for us at the reunions and family gatherings. Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. One family should not have had to endure so much sorrow. With our love, Garth and Anne
