Obituary for Dean W. Needham

Dean W. Needham, 65, of West Grove passed away on Thursday, February 15, 2018 after a courageous battle with Parkinson’s Disease.

He was the husband of Virginia “Ginny” Shivery Needham with whom he shared 36 years of marriage.

Born in West Grove, he was the son of the late W. Edgar and Virgie Johnson Needham.

He was a member of Beulah Baptist Church in Oxford.

For 20 years, Dean worked for the Southeastern Veterans Center in Spring City. He was very proud to serve the veterans and meet their transportation needs. He was also a bus driver for DuVall Bus Service for the Avon Grove School District and worked in his family’s mushroom business in his earlier years.

His hobbies included history, medicine and technology, and he had a love of the outdoors. He especially loved his dogs Abbey and Ellie, and his cat Joey.

Dean is survived by his wife; two sons, Shawn Needham of Philadelphia and Brian Needham of West Grove; one sister Virginia “Ginny” Peterson (David) of West Grove; and two nephews, Jeff Peterson (and family) of Nottingham and Mike Peterson (and family) of Little Britain.

Interment will be in the adjoining cemetery.
