Dean Francis Remlin of Stamford, a former Westport resident, died Jan. 31 at the Connecticut Hospice in Branford after a year-long battle with cancer.  He was 52.

He was born in Norwalk on March 13, 1960 son of Joseph F. Remlin and the late Shirley K. Remlin, who recently died on Jan. 13. He attended Bedford Junior High School and graduated from Staples High School in Westport in 1979.

For more than 25 years he worked at Allen’s Clam & Lobster House in Westport and Allen’s East in Stratford, CT.  Most recently, he worked for a catering company in Stamford.

Growing up in the 70’s, he had a passion for rock music and had the uncanny ability to recognize a song when the first note was played on the radio.  He especially liked the music of the Beatles.  He enjoyed watching NASCAR and sports on TV, playing video games, bowling, playing softball and going to tag sales.

He was very outgoing and could strike up a conversation with anyone he met. When he was younger, he loved sailing on the Sound which he learned from his father, Joe, who won many trophies for sailing Snipes.

He also owned an Invader and loved to be on the water. One of his favorite things to do was go to the beach at the end of the day and watch the sunset.

When he met Barbara, his partner for the last 26 years, he was introduced to Pugs and his constant companion for the last 17 years was his beloved Casey, who was “Daddy’s Little Shadow.” They loved to play hide and seek around the bushes in the backyard. 

He also enjoyed caring for his two parrots, Buck and Red for many years.

Survivors in addition to his life partner, Barbara S. Randi of Stamford,  and father Joseph F. Remlin of Indian Trail, N.C,. include one brother, Guy J. Remlin, two sisters, Diane M. Remlin of Litchfield, Nancy R. Donaldson of Indian Trail, N.C., one niece Sunny A. Mills, three nephews Alex G. Mills, Kevin J. Mills and Everett A. DeLucia, one great niece, Faith and two great nephews, Anthony and Justin.

Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial mass on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 11 a.m. meeting directly at Assumption Church, 98 Riverside Ave. Interment will follow in Saint John’s Cemetery, 223 Richards Ave., Norwalk.

Contributions in his memory may be made to the American Cancer Society. Those wishing to leave an online condolence, visit
