Dean was born in Greeley, Colorado to Glen Anderson and Linda Berry and before I was a year old we moved. For the first few years of my life we lived in several different location due to my fathers job. Eventually we settled in Walden, Colorado which happen to be home for my parents. We lived there until the summer of 1972 when my father got a job in Toledo, Ohio. So we packed up and moved across the "Great Midwest" to Toledo. What a culture shock for us kids, we went from a small town of just over 900 people to a city of over 400,000 people and that didn't include all the surrounding towns.

Dean married Stacie Rene Steeley on 8 Jun 1984 in Toledo, Ohio. They had two daughters from the marriage Danielle Leigh and Jessica Rae. Danielle was born while he was stationed at Misawa AB, Japan and Jessica Rae was born while he was stationed at Beale AFB, CA. Dean and Stacie were divorced on 18 Dec 1990 in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. [1]

Dean was remarried to Tammie Shaye Hardy on 19 Apr 1991 in May, Brown County, Texas. They had one son Anthony Chris Edward Anderson. Anthony was born while he was stationed at Kelly AFB, Texas.

Military Career

I am a retired veteran who served in the US Air Force for almost 21 years. I had the privilege of being stationed at numerous locations throughout the United States and the world. I was honored to have my retirement ceremony conducted in the courtyard at The Alamo and my retirement flag was flown above The Alamo prior to the ceremony. So, my military career has a special bond to San Antonio, it began with basic training and ended with my last assignment at Lackland AFB.

My assignments included: Lackland AFB, Texas, Lowry AFB, Colorado, Keesler AFB, Mississippi, Misawa AB, Japan, Beale AFB, CA, Taegue, AB, Republic of Korea, Kelly AFB, Texas, Eielson AFB, Alaska, Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona, and Lackland AFB, Texas.

I had many deployments and temporary assignments, here are just a few: Kadena AB, Okinawa, Yokota AB, Japan, Vincenza, Italy, Saudi Arabia (Desert Storm), Osan AB, Republic of Korea, Mildenhall AB, England, Clark AB, Philippines, Goodfellow AFB, Texas, Hurlburt Field, Florida, Nellis AFB, Nevada, and Barksdale AFB, Louisiana. Several of these I have been to multiple times.

Overall, I have been to 40 different states and at least 15 different countries. And these lists continue to grow each year as I continue to travel. My goal is to visit all 50 states and all 7 continents. I hope to make that happen soon.

Hobbies and Interests

I have been working on my family’s genealogy off and on for several years and have recently decided to start spending more time to getting it finished. I have always been fascinated with history and this goes right along with it. Additionally, I want to make sure that my grandchildren know who their ancestors where and were they came from. This is very important to me and I want to continue doing my part to keep the legacy alive.

I also enjoy doing research and looking for information, so I thought this would be an effective way to continue doing that and helping other people find their ancestors. I have found working on project to be very rewarding and have learned a lot about the different ones I have worked on. I try to work on a new one every month, in fact I find myself working on a couple at a time.

Besides genealogy I am an avid hockey fan. In fact, I play in an adult league, have coached youth for almost 20 years and have officiated for close to 25 years. Besides hockey I have also officiated football for almost 20 years. The highlights of my officiating have been when I was asked to work the Florida Panther (NHL) and San Antonio Rampage (AHL) Training Camp Scrimmage Games when I was stationed in San Antonio, Texas in 2003. It was a wonderful time getting to skate with teams. I have also done numerous state high hockey playoff and championship games in Texas, Arizona, and Nebraska. But the best probably was when I was working the State High School Football Championship Game in Alaska, it was televised and I made a call along the sidelines on a pass play calling it out of bounds. The coaches and players for that team didn’t like the call, but because it was televised the announcers were able to replay it in slow-motion and watch it again. And “yes” I made the right call.

Hi Dean,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries
