He was born in Boston, MA to the late Arthur Evans and Ruth Miriam McPhee. He attended Lexington Christian Academy, Eastern Nazarene College and The American University (Washington, D.C.), receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in information technology. He enlisted in the Army in 1954, trained as a heavy equipment operator, and helped build runways at Stansted Airport in Stansted, UK. He was honorably discharged in 1957.

Post-retirement he was a route manager for The Wall Street Journal. Devoted to his faith, Dean was an active member of Grace Pointe Community Church of the Nazarene in Severn.
