‘Dean’, as he liked to be called, was born at home in Roan Mountain to the late Oran and Martha Greer Boone. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one brother, Eugene Boone, wife, Ramona Smith Boone, and granddaughter, Sierra Rollins. Dean was a 1963 graduate of Cloudland High School and a member of his beloved Hunter Methodist Church. He retired after 43 years as a printer (Kingsport Press, Inove Graphics, and Arcata Graphics). He had an infectious smile, loved a cold Sprite from Sonics, known for looking spiffy and being a momma’s boy, and loved country cooking. In his spare time, he was passionate about tinkering with old cars, camping, woodworking, hunting, and wine making.
Those left to cherish his memory include his loving and devoted companion Judy Boone Orr, and five children: a daughter, Donna Pearce Harrell (Jim); a daughter, Theresia Boone Cannon (Tim); a son, Kyle Daniel Boone (Norma Livingston); a daughter, Robyn Boone Moore (Calvin Hyder); and daughter, Rebecca Boone Rollins (Michael); 8 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, a brother, Lawrence Boone (Mary); a brother, Jim Boone (Johnnie); a sister, Ann Teter; a sister, Grace Canter (Red); a sister, Charlotte Julian (Bud); and numerous special nieces, nephews and cousins.
