Dean Wile

JUNE 9, 1957 – MAY 7, 2015

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 givetokids.csisd.org/ways-to-give.

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.

“His winning smile and genuine interest in customers and friends will be greatly missed. Mac especially enjoyed his friendship, their conversations and lunches which I think happened on a regular basis. Dean could talk to anyone and make them feel special. He had such a wonderful memory of others interests.”

“We consider Dean as a friend and appreciate the help he has given us in the past to design memories for each other. Every time I look at jewelry Dean has crafted for us it brings back many times we have spent with Dean as an advisor and a friend.”

“Great jeweler. Great friend. Great partner for 34 years. We will miss him greatly!”

“Smiling face and friendly spirit.”

“Dean was inspiration. He was handicapped but never let that define him.”

“I will always remember Dean for his continuous upbeat attitude. He was a joy to be around. He made us feel as though we were in his home, not a jewelry store! God blesses us by having people like Dean in our everyday lives.”

“Dean touched all of us in one special way or another special way. He just brought out the best in humanity…and by inspiration, challenged each of us to be the best we could be in spite of limitations or challenges!!As Dean entered the Kingdom of Heaven, no doubt, he is busy at work serving His Lord (Our Lord) bringing smiles and joy and wonder to His Creator’s face…Dean was a man like no other, and he touched all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.”

“Mere words are slight comfort when facing the loss of a long time friend and an astute business associate. He was always a friendly and engaged presence in the store. His face would light up with a big grin whenever I would come in. He will be deeply missed by us all and especially by the two of you.”
