N. Dean Overton

N. Dean Overton, born June 8, 1929, passed away on Oct. 18 at his home with his family by his side: his wife, Roberta; son, Dean; and daughter, Tina. He had bravely battled cancer the past two and a half years.

He proudly served the

United States Army during the

Korean War as a medic and was even wounded during his service years. He came home and married his childhood sweetheart in 1955. They adopted their children in 1959, and he dearly loved them, and they always knew that he did.

He started working at a chemical company when he was 17 years old and retired from there. He also had a successful career for over 10 years as a Los Angeles County Sheriff reserve officer working both patrol and as drill instructor. He moved to Mariposa 25 years ago after his retirement.

In addition to his successful career, he also found time to raise and train Peruvian horses. He enjoyed model trains, boating, games and puzzles. He was quite the joker and flirt and enjoyed sending email jokes to many of his friends and family members on a daily basis. He was an extremely intellegent man and was even a memeber of the Mensa Society.

His family was very important to him, and he especially enjoyed when they came to visit him. He was very close to his two brothers and one sister. He enjoyed all his friends and neighbors.

He will always be remembered for having the most beautiful blue eyes. He is loved and will be missed by his wife, son, daughter and oldest brother. In addition, he is loved and will be missed by all his other relatives.
