Obituary for GEORGE ” DEAN” DAVIS HOLBROOK

George “Dean” Davis Holbrook, 72, of Wesley Chapel Florida passed peacefully in his sleep next to his wife and daughter on March 19, 2019 at 7:30am at Gulf Regional Hospice of Zephyrhills.

Dean was born on April 7, 1946 in Quincy Massachusetts to mother Sarah McLelland and father Garfield Edson Holbrook. He was the youngest of eleven siblings. He married Barbara A. Holbrook of Tampa Florida on October 1, 1993 and they had one child, Maegan who is married to Samuel Daley.

Dean struggled with drug and alcohol addiction during the early part of his life but was very proud of beginning his sobriety on  January 11, 1978. He used his own struggles with addiction to help others, saving many jobs and families over the years. He had a television show in the early 90’s on public access called “Solutions with Dean” that educated parents of the warning signs that their child may be using drugs or drinking alcohol and gave them tips to help. He loved selflessly and helped others any time he had the chance.

When Dean wasn’t filming his TV show, he owned his own company “Maegan’s Dad Pressure Washing and Painting” painting many houses in the Tampa area. He retired in November of 2010, a few years after his Dementia diagnosis.  He enjoyed watching horse racing and playing online poker in his spare time. He loved music and his favorite artist was Jerry Lee Lewis. Dean loved singing with his brother in law’s garage band, and passed his love of music to his daughter.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Trinity Church of Wesley Chapel on his birthday April 7th, 2019 at 3 PM. The family will receive friends and family at 2:30 PM and a dinner to follow. Dean’s wife and daughter are asking everyone in attendance to wear something red because that was his favorite color. Please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association in his honor.
