Dean Hiss once again shared his story of life. Born July 25. 1926, on a wheat farm in S. Central Kansas near Kingsdown, KS. Dean was a farm kid, milking cows, slopping hogs gathering eggs etc. His mother was known as the “Chicken Assassin” because of all the chickens she killed and cooked up. She could pluck a chicken faster than anyone else around. As a youth, Dean would drive and tractor with metal wheels in the wheat field going 2 mph. Then he upgraded to a newer tractor with rubber tires and it went 7 mph.

Dean graduated from H.S. in 1945 but before he graduated, while driving a school bus, he managed to flip the bus but luckily it was empty. Dean was in the Navy a short time during WWII until July 1946, never leaving the states, and with the GI Bill, went to Washburn University. After graduating in 1951 with a B.A., he came to Denver to visit during the summer with a couple friends and rented a fully furnished house. At some point in his early working career, he was a Fuller Brush Salesman. He went back to Wichita and worked at Boeing on the swing shift a short time. In 1953 he came back to Denver and got married. He worked for Midland Federal Savings and Loan, also Littleton Federal which has changed its name a couple times over the years. In 1971, Dean went into the appraisal business and retired in 1998.

Dean went back to Kansas a short time back and went through Greensburg where the tornado about whipped the town off the map. He had some pictures of the area, there wasn’t much left to see except a few foundations. This was about 25 miles from Dean’s home town.

Dean has 2 sons, one in Durango and the other in Arvada, and 2 grandsons, about 9 & 5 years old. Dean has been married to Mary since 1954. Steve Bolyard brought him into the club in Oct. 1965 .
