Dean passed away suddenly, aged 60, at home in Aldergrove. He will be sadly missed by his mother Janette Johnson, father Dave Giesbrecht (Joanne), brother Jeffery (Branda), daughter Amanda (Jumean), son David (Brandi), and many relatives and friends.
Dean was proud of his work with the Falkland Volunteer Fire Department and in the construction industry throughout B.C. He was a good-hearted man who loved playing his guitar, cheering on the Seahawks, and being with family and friends. We will never forget his laugh and straight-talking ways.
Here’s to you, Deano ! There will be no service due to the pandemic.
You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence for the family.
I’m honoured to have known Deano for the past 40 plus years. He was always a loyal friend who stayed in touch and never forgot a birthday. You are sadly missed Dean. Rest in piece my friend

So nice to see a picture of Dean. He looked just like his cousin Ken Giesbrecht. My brother Jakes son. Hugs to you and Branda It’s difficult losing a sibling I know. Just remember all the happy times you had with him. Love from my family to yours..
I was always so happy to run into Dean... I'm so sorry for your loss... but I'm sure my brother Gary is overjoyed to be with him again and they're already having a rum and coke, shooting pool, and arguing over the Seahawks and Broncos...
My sincere condolences to Dean's family and friends. I truly loved this man. Had a lot of good times on the farm on Barnston Island. Was really looking forward to reconnecting with Deano. Rest in peace❤
Even though we didn’t see much of each other these past years due to the distance between us(I live in Alberta), we were always close in spirit. The last comment I had from Dean was “ Love you, Sis ❤️“. That was just over a month ago. When we were very young, Jeff was sick a lot so mama would walk the floors with him at night and Dean would snuggle in beside me on the couch (that’s where we slept then). When I was older and lived in Penticton and Dean was in Falkland, he called me one thanksgiving to see if I wanted to come for dinner. I didn’t have a vehicle at the time so he drove to Penticton to get me and then the next day drove me back. It was over 2hrs driving one way. There are many such memories I have with Dean. Far too many to post but I love you Dean and I will miss you terribly.
We are so very sorry for your loss. We have many, far-reaching memories of good times and lots of laughs over the years with Deano. Rest well old friend.
Rip another aldergroveian gone to soon till we all meet again
