Dean “Trucker Dean” A. Alexander


Dean A. Alexander “Trucker Dean” was born May 27, 1948, in Backus. Jesus wrapped His arms around Dean on June 7, 2013, at his home in Backus.

Dean is survived by his son, Zac (Mary); daughter, Rebecca (RJ); his awesome grandchildren, Chase, Bailey, Chaia, Elijah and Becket; brothers, Peter (Linda), Jim (Brenda) and Wade (Tammy); sister, Cynthia (John); many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Ethel; father, Peter; and sister, Melinda.

Dean took joy in owning his logging company for 30 years and driving semi across the country. He was an active “trucker buddy” in his grandchildren’s schools. He made many memories camping, fishing, sightseeing and laughing. He was a diamond in the rough that will truly be missed.

A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 16, at the Pine Mountain Pavilions in Backus.

Arrangements are with Kline Funeral Home, Pine River.
