Dean Wile Memorial

Dean Wile grew up a farm boy from Iowa. His years on the farm, and in FFA and 4H developed his love of agriculture and all things mechanical. When, at the age of 19, a car accident left him a paraplegic, it was his mechanical passion that spurred his love of street rods and hay farming. There weren’t many places he’d rather be than in his garage working on one of his hotrods or on his farm bailing hay.

A scholarship fund has been set up in remembrance of Dean A. Wile. Our hope is that this endowment will help benefit the FFA students of College Station High School for years to come. It gives us great joy and comfort to be able to help local FFA kids ever year in his memory.

Please consider giving to this fund in honor of Dean.

Our goal is to raise $25,000 for the scholarship to be endowed. If you are interested in donating, you can make checks out to the CSISD Education Foundation, write "Dean Wile Memorial Scholarship" on the memo line and mail to 1812 Welsh, CS, TX 77840 - or - you can donate online at

In the wake of Dean’s sudden passing, the kind words from our customers continue to bring us so much joy. Knowing you loved him as much as we did and remember him as fondly is such a gift to us.
