Horrible news. I assumed he'd be in Vancouver for the events over the next few days and was absolutely stunned to hear he wasn't going to make it. A sad and tragic passing and all condolences for family and friends.

40 years ago... Canadore College Helicopter Pilot Program  (1977-78)

It was a pleasure to have Dean as one of the gang that trained/worked/partied/played together that year.

My condolences to family and friends...

"Disco Dean" was well-loved by his 77-78 classsmates, and I am proud to be one of them. Dean was also Enbridge's Chief Helicopter Pilot and we have that company in common as well - I transitioned into Occupational Health and Safety several years ago. You'll be missed, Dean. Fly on, Silver Fox!

Where does 'Disco Dean come from"? Thanks

As I recall... the late 70's was the peak of the disco dance craze and music era ( think of the Bee Gee's "Stayin' Alive" album and John Travolta "Saturday Night Fever" movie.

Dean Bass was popular with the ladies at the college pubs, and every time he got up to dance, Ted Acheson and the boys would surround "The Silver Fox" on  the dancefloor and copy "Disco" Dean's dance moves!  (much to the embarrassment of the girl he was dancing with)  I guess we can credit Ted (Charlie Farquarson) Acheson  for giving Disco Dean that handle.
