In memory of
REV. K. DEAN ECHOLS
In Memory of Rev. K. Dean Echols At 3:45am on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, Dean Echols, born September 11, 1924, passed from this world into the loving arms of God having completed his course in faith. Dean is survived by wife, Mally C. Echols; daughters, Marjorie F. Echols and Shoshana Anne Simon (William); sons, Thomas D. Echols (Louise), Peter H. Echols (Cherrill), Chip Mackenzie (Mary Ellen) and John Young (Elizabeth); three granddaughters; five grandsons; and three great grandchildren; his brother, John M. Echols (Carolyn); first wife, Betty Logue Wegener; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by son, James M. Echols (Robert "Bob" Stilwell). These are but a few of the people who will miss this kind, passionate and loving man. Dean's lifelong career as a minister of the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ has touched thousands of lives as he served churches in both Northern and Southern California over 65 years. He was a graduate of Chapman University, Orange CA, with his B.A. (1946) and of Pacific School of Religion, Berkeley CA, with his Master of Divinity (1952). Both schools remained important to Dean all his life which was evident through his generous gifts of time, talent and money, having served as Chapman University Alumni Board President, Director of Alumni Relations and Director of Church Relations and on the Board of Trustees at PSR. Dean and Mally's residence is at the Covington, 3 Pursuit, Aliso Viejo CA, 92656. An intimate family service was held on August 30 at the Fish Interfaith Center where he was interred in the columbarium. Donations may be made to Chapman University, the "Dean and Mally Echols Scholarship" (for students preparing for the ministry), One University Drive, Orange CA 92866. Many thanks to McCormick and Son Mortuary, Laguna Hills CA, for their loving preparations and friendship.
