Doyle Dean was born near Columbus, Nebraska on October 29, 1932, to Fred and Hazel (Voss) Bauman. He was raised on farms near Columbus where he received his education.
Doyle served in the United States Army Corp of Engineers in the Korean War. Following the service he returned home to work in a lumber mill before joining his parents on their farm in Garfield County, Nebraska.
Doyle was active in the community, serving on the Midvale 4-M School Bard as well as volunteering as a 4-H welding leader. He enjoyed working with the children in the neighborhood.
On May 17, 1980, Doyle was united in marriage to Virginia (Bilstein) Rickard. He gained a ready-made family complete with four children. He felt his life was rich as he had always wanted a family of his
own. The grandchildren that followed completed his happiness as only children can.
Doyle was a Packers fan, never missing a game on TV. He was always ready to play cards or to sit and talk with family and friends. He was a devoted member of the American Legion Color Guard for nearly two
decades; Doyle took pride in serving fellow veterans at parades and funerals.
