David Bean

May 28, 1949 — Sept. 15, 2013

David Loren Bean of Pollock Pines, Calif., age 64, passed away at home on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013, with his loving family by his side. He was born in Woodlake, Calif., on May 28, 1949, to Loren “Doc” and Nelda Bean. The family moved to Smith Flat, Calif., in 1960. Dave attended elementary and high school in Placerville. He entered the army in 1969 during the Vietnam war. He was a proud veteran who served until December 1970, returning home as a Sergeant E-5 with a purple heart. He worked for the U.S. Forest Service for 35 years, retiring in 2004. He loved fishing, four-wheeling, a good game of cribbage and camping with his family.

Dave married the love of his life, Debbie, in August 1992. Together they raised five children, Josh Bean of Sacramento, Calif., Michael (Tiffany) Sanne of Plymouth, Calif., Jamie Bean of Baltimore, Md., Jesse Sanne of Plymouth and Jodie (David) Davidson of Pioneer, Calif. He was “Papa Bean” to his grandchildren Hayden, Mason, Dakota, Korrin, Clayton and Nolan. He is also survived by two sisters, Diane (Billy) Brandt and Dorothy Mortenson of Yerington, Nev.; sister-in-law, Raeona Smelser of Placerville; brother-in-law, David (Nola) Scalzi of Pollock Pines; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and his step-mother, Mary.

No formal services will be held and the family requests that in lieu of flowers a donation may be made in Dave’s name to Snowline Hospice, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619, or online at snowlinehospice.org/donate. Arrangements entrusted to Chapel of the Pines Funeral Home in Placerville.
