Harold Dean Caldwell, 79, of Boonville, MO passed away on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at his home in Boonville, MO.

Visitation will be held from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at William Woods Funeral Home, 517 4th St, Boonville, MO. Funeral services will be at 10:00 AM on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Walnut Grove Cemetery, Boonville, MO.

Dean was born on March 20, 1938 in Versailles, MO the son of William Orlando and Ruby Irene (Kidwell) Caldwell who preceded him in death. He was married on October 4, 1959 in Boonville, MO to Judy Lymer, who survives of the home. Prior to working at S & C Sales for over 25 years, he worked for many years at International Harvester and never knew a stranger. In his spare time, Dean spent many years enjoying tractor pulls, coaching Keith and Kevin’s baseball teams, going to moto-cross races, bowling, fishing, golfing, and spending time with his family. Deano (as he was known to many) was always quick to produce a comical one-liner in any given situation to make people laugh. Many people also remember him as a great roller skater, and the fact that even into his 60’s, he could walk across a room on his hands.

Other survivors include: three children, Keith Caldwell (Marcey) of Boonville, MO, Kevin Caldwell (Monique) of Rocheport, MO and Kimberly Harris (Fred) of Boonville, MO; four grandchildren, Austin Caldwell, Arliss Caldwell, Bryce Page and Brayden Page; one brother, Mancel Caldwell of Boonville, and six sisters, Laverne Caldwell of St. Louis, MO, Margaret Knierim of Boonville, MO, Cathy Oswald of Boonville, MO, Peggy Clay of Moberly, MO, Donna Winningham of Boonville, MO and Carolyn King of Mississippi. He was also preceded in death by two brothers, Bill Caldwell and John Caldwell and two sisters, Maxine Caldwell and Marilyn Caldwell.
