Dean Hoag: My friend and Shabbona neighbor.
Dean was responsible for teaching me how to swim in the Cass River near Shabbona !, well it was either that or get dunked and drink the river dry, ugh ugh.
When I was finishing the 8th grade, Dean, the Cool Senior, invited me to go to High
School with him, of course I went, And My
went to Baseball practice that afternoon, what a day in my life and Thanks to you Dean,
for that memory
Oh yes Dean was a Wolvie and I a Spartan so we had lots of discussions? over the years
but I still thought of of him as my friend & The Cool Senior from 1954.
RIP Dean and My Condolences to your Family
RIP Dean

My sympathy to the Hoag family. Dean was a very dear friend and classmate. We had many good times together in our younger days, and lots of great memories on the sports fields. I will miss seeing him at our class reunions. God's Peace.
