Born in Providence, Rhode Island on June 15th, 1948

Departed on October 20th, 2020 and resided in Centennial, Colorado

Dean Alan Moses was born June 15, 1948 in Providence, RI.  He was born to Alva Coffin Moses and Francis Luther Moses and joined older sister, Beverly, to complete their family.

Dean passed at the age of 72 in his home in Centennial, CO on October 20, 2020.

Dean graduated from high school in East Providence, RI.  He went on to graduate from Clark University, Worcester, MA while serving in the Rhode Island National Guard.   From there he received his JD from Western New England College in Springfield, MA.

Dean leaves Sandi (Lovell) wife of 48 years, a daughter, Sarah (Brett) Pardikes of Frederick, CO and a son, Jared (Natalie) Moses of Florence, Montana.  He leaves a sister, Beverly Sawyer of Warwick, RI as well as several nieces and nephews.

Dean moved his family to Colorado in 1978 working as an Oil and Gas Landman for ARCO Oil Company.   His interest took him into the realm of Public Lands for several western states including Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, North Dakota and New Mexico.  His involvement with the Bureau of Land Management and state legislatures was very rewarding to Dean.

While at ARCO, Dean was heavily involved with the United Way campaign.  He represented his field of work for Junior Achievement – Denver, speaking to classes of 9th graders about careers in oil and gas.  Dean was active in the Denver Chamber of Commerce and the Denver Area Petroleum Landmen’s Association.

On the relaxing side, Dean was a bona-fide sun worshiper and loved soaking up the warm days of summer beside the ocean he so loved growing up.  He made friends easily and would try anything once.

We will miss Dean, Husband, Dad, Uncle, Brother, Friend in this life hoping he is full of pride as he looks upon his family and friends and his many accomplishments.  Nice Job, Dean.

A memorial service with family will be held at a later date.

Sandy, Sarah and Jared…I was very saddened to hear that Dean had passed on.

Dean was not only my Uncle but he was my friend….

When I read this today I thought of our families with the great losses in the past year.

“I believe the hardest part of healing after you have lost someone you love , is to recover the “you” that went away with them.

May he rest in peace and your family be comforted during this difficult time.
Love, Tracee

Dean was a very special friend for so many years, and I have so many fond memories of all the fun times we shared together with the both of you, Sandi — birthdays, Thanksgivings, New Year’s Eve, weekend cookouts. We could always count on Chuck and Dean being up to something. I’m so glad that you have the support of your wonderful family to help you through this difficult time. We love you, and we hold you in our hearts and our thoughts. Find peace and comfort from your many friends and family.
