CORVALLIS, MT - Dean Andrew Jackson of Corvallis passed away at home of natural causes on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. He was born in Hawthorne, CA on December 9, 1946. He is the son of Joseph and Signe Jackson and grew up in Lakewood and Long Beach, CA. He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Patricia A. Jackson. Sons Graham and Ryan Jackson. Grandchildren Ian Jackson and Ally Pawlak and his mother Signe Jackson. He had one sister, Jody Jackson who passed away in 1974. Dean managed a chain of auto part stores in Southern California for over twenty years. He proudly served in the Air force as a fuel systems mechanic with an honorable discharge as a Buck Sergeant. Dean and Patty left the state of California to move to Corvallis to daily admire the beautiful Bitterroot Valley. He loved taking gorgeous nature photos and bird-watching. He was an avid fan of the Dodgers, enjoyed reading and liked the challenge of putting together 1000-piece puzzles. Dean’s most valued possession was his Salvation, the day that he came to know and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Dean publicly professed his faith and salvation through baptism in the Bitterroot River. At his baptism, the following are excerpts are what he read aloud for all to hear. “As is quite common I accepted Christ when I was at the low point in my life. When I received eternal life, my earthly path changed.” “I was baptized as an infant and I give thanks to my parents for this dedication service. But now as an adult, I wish to act on my faith and be obedient to Christ’s command. Showing to the world that I am Saved through my Lord’s death and resurrection.” Dean proclaimed his faith that beautiful day and enjoyed throughout his years singing praises to our Almighty God in the church choir.
Dean may not be here with us on this earth, but his memory will never be forgotten. For those who have said, I am a sinner and in need of a Savior. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. I asked Jesus to be my Savior, they know the truth. The Bible tells us, through Dean’s physical death where his body has passed away, the glorious truth is his spirit and soul are fully alive and rejoicing in Heaven! If you are saved, which he wants for everyone reading this, his story does not end. This is not goodbye, but a so long and Dean looks forward to seeing you one day in Heaven. John 14:1-6.
