Friends of Dean Marsh are mourning his loss today. He attended High Lakes Christian Church in La Pine. Members of his church helped look for Dean over the last week. His body was found in the Deschutes River in the La Pine State Park Thursday. Dulcy Pierce remembers her friend: “He was a man of faith. He was one of the most caring and compassionate people, truly that I had ever met. He also had a smile on his fact and a word of encouragement. We’re all pretty devastated. We were hoping against hope and praying for a happy ending.” Marsh had moved to La Pine about two years ago from Washington State.
