Obituary

Wallace "Hack" Dean, 75 years of age, passed away on Monday, October 7th, 2019 quietly in his home in Lancaster, Va. Hack was born April 6, 1944, in Washington, Pennsylvania to the late Walter and Catherine Dean. He was an only child.

He is survived by his wife and love of his life of 53 years, Lore Dean who he married in 1966. He is also survived by his daughter, Jodi Mills and her husband, Chuck; his three grandchildren, Charlie Mills, Jordan Mills and Emily Mills. Hack enjoyed traveling and visiting with his 2 brothers-in-law and their wives; his two nieces, five nephews and their beautiful families. This connection to his family gave him such joy.

After graduating from Chartiers-Houston Jr./Sr. High School in Houston, Pennsylvania, Hack joined The Pennsylvania Army National Guard as a Reservist. Hack dabbled in many career interests before he was recruited by the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue in Fairfax, Virginia, as a professional firefighter/EMT. Hack and Lore retired to the Northern Neck of Virginia where they built their dream home on the water.

Hack involved himself with the water life and serving at Bethel United Methodist Church. He loved to sing in the choir, was a leader with the Methodist Men and acted as the Lay Leader for the last 17 years. He loved to cook for his family, friends and his church. It was through his love of Christ and his career in firefighting that Hack became the Chaplin with the Upper Lancaster Volunteer Fire Department.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date at Bethel United Methodist Church so that out of-town family and friends may attend. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Bethel United Methodist Church Music Fund, P. O. Box 118, Lively, VA 22507 or the Upper Lancaster Volunteer Fire Department, P. O. Box 205, Lively, VA 22507 in honor of Wallace Hack Dean.

He will be sadly missed and remembered fondly by those who knew him.

Lore and Jodie and family. I was heartbroken to hear of Hack's passing. He was one of a kind and he certainly left the world around him in much better shape then when he found it so many years ago. He was a dear friend and will be missed. I hope the many memories will carry you thru this difficult time.
