Dean Carlson, who joined Orpheus in 1988, passed away on Tuesday, October 5 after a long illness. Dean sang in the baritone section and remained an active member until his health prevented him from doing so.

He was awarded a special certificate of recognition at our Holidays with Orpheus 2019 concert at First United Methodist Church. As an Emeritus member, Dean loved Orpheus and retained his interest in the group right to the end.

Dean will be long remembered and long missed.
