November 17, 1970 - December 28, 2022
Loving husband, father, son, brother and friend, Dean Bellinger's love of life didn't come to an end with his death. Dean passed away suddenly and peacefully on December 28th, 2022 at the age of 52. His loved ones will continue to honour his legacy by living their lives to the fullest. The simplest pleasures in life brought Dean great joy. He loved a party, sitting around a bonfire or snuggling up on the couch for a family movie. He took pride in being able to keep any type of machine running long after others would have given up. On his days off, he could be found with his girls fishing, skiing with his family or exploring the river in his backyard that he loved so much. Dean had an uncanny ability to find happiness in the simplest of activities. His welcoming smile and outgoing personality was contagious to everyone he met. He is forever loved and remembered by his wife Tanya (nee Zylstra), his daughters Gabby and Katie, his parents Susan and Dennis Bellinger, his brother Ryan Bellinger (Jennifer Brinklow) and his nieces Addison and Avery Bellinger. Dear son-in-law to Bert and Jeanette Zylstra and brother-in-law to James Zylstra. Dean will be missed by many aunts and uncles, cousins and friends.
