Dean Alan Hatch was born April 6, 1948, in Rapid City to John Clair and LaVerne Hatch.

As a graduate from Rapid City's Central High School in 1966, he participated in many of the schools sports and clubs. He enjoyed basketball, baseball, football, track, wrestling, rodeo, 4-H, FFA, BSA and the R-club. During which time he also worked at a couple of dairies and a trading post.

After graduation he served a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the North-Western States Mission.

Upon his return home he was married to Jean Lynette Gough June 27, 1969, in the Salt Lake City, Utah, temple.

He moved to Brookings to pursue a BS degree in Animal Science at South Dakota State University and graduated on the Dean's list. After graduation he moved his new family to Belle Fourche and started his own business, D & J Trim Upholstery from 1972 until 1987. While living in Belle he was Boy Scout Troop leader for 10 years leading over 30 young men. From 1987-1995 he became a district executive for the Boy Scouts of America in Riverton, Wyo., and later in Williston, N.D. After working for the Boy Scouts he owned an LDS bookstore, worked in sales and worked as a contract driver.

He was also a spiritual leader. He served as a youth seminary teacher, as a high council member, counselor to bishops, a bishop, and finally worked in the Bismarck, N.D., temple.

He loved camping, canoeing, swimming, ice-skating, golfing and horseback riding. He was a jokester, storyteller and a very spiritual mentor. His warm smile, the twinkle in his eyes and his sense of humor touched the lives of everyone he came into contact with.

He is survived by his mother, his wife, his brother and his family, his two sisters and their families, his five children and their spouses with 25 grandchildren.
