Dean A. Mount, 74, lifelong resident of Cherry Creek, passed away peacefully on September 7th, 2020 at Heritage Village Rehab Skilled Nursing Facility.
Dean was born March 23, 1946 to Jean N. (Waters) and Clinton W. Mount.
Dean owned and operated his own dairy farm, was a police officer for the Village of Cherry Creek, and was appointed a special deputy sheriff for the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Department by John R. Bentley. Dean was Mayor of Cherry Creek for fifteen years, while also selling cars for Lakeshore Ford/Purdy and Gowanda Ford. In his retirement years he drove truck for Heil Trucking. Dean was a lifetime member of the Cherry Creek Fire Department where he served for over 45 years.
Dean will be remembered for his strength, leadership, laughter, and as his supervisor at Lakeshore Ford would say "his gift to gab." Dean lived to fish and hunt, and he even won third place in a Walleye Tournament on Lake Erie. He spent many summers on the lake in his boat, "The Mayor's Toy" and had a camp at Blue Water Beach.
He is survived by his brother, Thomas L. Mount, of Northeast PA, his children, Cheryl E. Visker, Steven D. (Audrey) Mount, Karen S. Hoth, and his son in law Kirk D. Hoth; his grandchildren, Daniel and Lacey Visker, Ashley (Vinnie) Porzio, Courtney and Jake Mount and Kaitlyn and Kristina Hoth; his stepchildren, Debra Grout and Brian Giannini; his great grandchildren, Mckenzie and Vincenzo Porzio and Aaliyah Visker.
Dean was preceded in death by his father, Clinton W. Mount and his mother, Jean N. Mount.
