Dean Braley died December 6, 2007, in his daughter's home in the extremely caring community of Lancaster, NH. He lost the war against cancer after 4 courageous battles. He was born October 23, 1934, in Old Town ME, the son of Edward and Carolyn Geurin Braley.

He grew up in Old Town and Bangor ME and finally settled in Orrington ME in 1969 with his wife and family. Dean worked for many years as a pipe fitter traveling the state of Maine and at times the country. In 1985 he became the business agent for Local 321 in Brewer ME. He also served for a time with the U.S. Army. Dean loved to hunt, fish, and entertain family and friends with his guitar and harmonica. He was always one for a good joke. Dean was a craftsman of many arts and loved nature, puzzles, and card games. He fulfilled his retirement dream relaxing at camp on Rocky Pond in Orland in 1990.

Dean leaves his son Dean Braley and wife Shirley of Orland; daughters Brenda and husband Charles Robicheau of Bucksport ME, Theresa Cabral and fiancé Jon Chapman of Dedham ME, and Rhonda and her husband Glenn Adams of Lancaster NH; grandchildren Michael and wife Jenny Robicheau of Bangor, Joe Robicheau of Bucksport, Tyler Cabral of Dedham, Daniel, Andrew, and Nick Ireland of Lancaster NH, Alisa Bragg of Amherst ME, and Tricia Smith of Brewer ME; wonderful great-grandchildren Brandon, Cody, Ashley, Jared, Jacob, and newborn Jaxson Dean; sisters Rose Danforth and husband Doug, and Bette Jamison, all of Brewer; brother James Braley and his Becca of Bailyeville ME; and many nieces and nephews.

Dean was predeceased by his parents; his wife of 50 years, Elizabeth; son Greg; daughter Susan; sisters Jane Tedesco, Brenda Gray, and Calie Eacman; and brothers Timothy and Leslie Braley.

Dean's family has been at complete awe for the kindness and support given from all in the Lancaster community. Thank you all so very much.
