Passed away at his home on Thursday April 14, 2022, in his 91st year. He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years Edna (nee Crawford) Dean, his son Ed (Jan) Dean and his daughter Nancy (Frank) VanOstaeyen. Loving grandfather of Rachel Dean, Melanie (Ryan) Ferris, Nicole (Tony) VanOstaeyen-Koot, late Katie VanOstaeyen (2005), Christie VanOstaeyen, Kelsey (Brandon) Ingram and great-grandfather to Carter, Brady, Elizabeth, Nolan, Harry, KC, and Kallie. Dear brother of Shirley Stairs. Predeceased by his parents James and Annie (ne Ross) Dean and by his siblings: Ernie, Carl, John, Tom, Bob, Charlie, Laurie, Norman, and Catherine. Basil worked in the lumber mill industry for many years, drove transport truck for over 10 years and then started Basil Dean and Son Towing Ltd. He had many passions throughout his life including his love for the game of golf. Nothing compared to the love he had for his family. You could always depend on him to be there when you needed him or if you just needed a laugh.

Cremation has taken place. Interment will take place at Oxford Memorial Park Cemetery later. If desired, memorial contributions to the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario or the Woodstock Hospital would be appreciated. Expressions of sympathy may be given at www.brockandvisser.com A special thank you to Dr. Miettinen, Dr. Sondhi, Palliative Care Unit, Yung Me and Ciji Masters for your care and support. Your actions will never be forgotten.
