It was reported on the IHMSA forum that Dean has passed away. I have no confirmation or details at this time.
Oh my - sad news !!
That's sad news indeed.
Prayers to his wife and family.
I really enjoyed going to his shoots.
Sorry to hear this.
Praying for the family.
I had not seen him post here in a long time.
Prayers for the family.
Didnt sink in at first. I couldn’t remember his last name. I liked dean!
Ihmsa 80x80 right?
He was on rimfirecentral forums. I went and looked. His wife posted that he passed away yesterday. It appears he had some sort of cancer.
I went to his range twice i think. He was a good guy and we had a lot of fun.
Very sad. I pray his wife is able to do well without him. She had some serious health issues and his passing might be extremely hard on her.
Truly sad news for those who knew him.
Sad news for sure. One thing we shared in common was opposite ends of PacNor rifle barrel blanks sent to OTT. Fun to comment on on their performance after being built.
Dean always had the best pictures, lots of Dan Wessons and so on. I missed him even before this news.
Dean and I shared a 17 caliber blank to make the 17M2's
Hey folks, Marilyn sent me the following information:
This is the link to Dean’s Obituary that’s listed on (at) the funeral home. It was put up today: https://www.linnemannfuneralho...ry/dean-thomas-grua/
The Memorial Service will be next Thursday. The link for this is also up, but won’t air until December 17, 2020 at 5:50 pm, when you can click it then and watch it as it is happening that night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn0Zankrnp0
So Sorry to hear this! We had a lot of fun at his shoots! He was always fun to talk too! Godspeed Dean! Prayers to his family!
So sad to hear this. Dean was a great silo shooter, I shot with him a lot in Indy, Bloomington, and Georgetown. Always a quick wit, fun to shoot with. Prayers to his family.
I just got the notice from Mark Taylor, very sad indeed, enjoyed spending hours in the old chat rooms talking with him. God speed Dean
Prayers for the family
Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I never met Dean but always enjoyed his quick wit and his knowledge of Dan Wesson’s. He’ll be missed.
I've been asked by Marilyn, Dean's wife, to query members that may have been around Dean for pictures of him. So, if you have any photographs you'd be willing to send me, I'd appreciate it.
this news sucks.
I used to stay up at night with the group on the chat page or early weekend mornings, and could count on Dean to have something to say.
His banter was good natured and well needed at a rough time in life.
Dean's unique collection of arms, wide range of knowledge, and rabbit stories will be missed.
Godspeed, Rulz Boy!
