Eldean Earl Litch

Dec. 3, 1949

June 29, 2018

Eldean "Dean" Earl Litch, 68 years old, was called home on June 29, 2018, to be with his savior, The Lord Jesus Christ. Dean passed away peacefully at home in Noel, Missouri, after a short battle with cancer with his loving wife, Susan, by his side.

Dean was born December 3, 1949, in Britton, South Dakota. He loved their home (a simple log cabin at the end of a dirt road) and their three labs, Sweet Sadie Merk, Rolly-Polly Coalee & Rotten Remy. He loved the outdoors, Cardinal baseball games, NASCAR races and collecting Indian art & artifacts. Because of Dean's love of history, Route 66 was always included in his travels and his favorite place to visit was Taos, New Mexico.

He is survived by four children, Jon Toth, Jessica Conley (her husband Brad), Zachary Casper and Tiffany Casper; three grandchildren, Jason and Paige Conley and Briana Toth; and last but not least, "Sis" N.J. Litch (his sister). He has left behind numerous family members and friends who will miss him dearly, but he is now reunited with many family members and friends in a better place who have preceded him.

Services were held July 5, 2018, at the Delaware Baptist Church in Grove, Oklahoma.
