Our heart and prayers goes out to his family and friends and we pray that the Good Lord will grant them the fortitude to bear their loss.
A good soul to be missed by all
From all indications, a lot of people have begun to miss Dean. Loved ones eulogized the deceased as an ideal friend, lovable and trustworthy. Friends and relatives alike are singing the praise of Dean as they recall the wonderful time they shared with the fellow whom they continue to describe as a rare gem.
David Archuletta, a former classmate of DeCarlo’s, described him as “one of the nicest people” he’s ever met. He was never rude to anyone, he included everyone,” Archuletta said. “When you had a bad day, he always made you laugh. Anytime he walked into a room, it would just light up.”
Matt Andenucio, the head coach of Pueblo County Basketball, recognized his former shooting guard as one of his smartest players. From his sophomore to senior years, DeCarlo was a member of the varsity basketball team. “That’s why he fit in our program so well, that’s why he got big minutes even as a sophomore, aside from being a good basketball player,” Andenucio said. “He was really smart, he was able to catch on to everything we did at a high level beyond his years.” As a person, Andenucio described DeCarlo as popular with the team and in the school. “People just gravitated toward him on the team,” Andenucio said. “He was just someone you enjoyed being around. Basketball is a grind with those long practices, and he would always make them better.”
