Dean James Proyous

 
Loving husband, father and grandfather
 
 Dean James Proyous, 70, of Westford, formerly of South Dartmouth, passed away peacefully with his devoted wife and daughter by his side at Lowell General Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Maryann (Morris) Proyous who survives him and with whom he just recently celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary on June 18th.
 Born in Fall River, Massachusetts, August 22, 1946, the son of the late James and the late Alexandra (Dardas) Proyous, he attended Fall River schools and was a graduate of Durfee High School in the Class of 1964. Eager to further his education, he then went on to graduate from Southeastern Massachusetts University (now known as U/Mass Dartmouth) with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Work and Human Services.
 Before retiring, Dean was employed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a Licensing Coordinator at the Department of Mental Health and Human Services in Wrentham for many years. Following his retirement, he worked for various private human service agencies.
 Very religious and active with the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in Lowell, he served on the Board of Directors as Treasurer. He also created and helped to facilitate the church’s first Community Kitchen Ministries in which he served monthly luncheons to those in need in the Lowell community.
 Among his many interests, Dean enjoyed antiquing, coin collecting, listening to bluegrass music and loved reading historical books, most notably anything about Abraham Lincoln. He was an avid Patriots and Red Sox fan and had quite a vast collection of baseball memorabilia.
 Above all else though, Dean most cherished spending time with his family and dearest friends. He was treasured and will be remembered most for his calm, quiet, contented nature and his appreciation of peace and harmony and the simple blessings in life all around him. The saying, he could not hurt a fly, rang most true about Dean's spirit. He was a gentle soul and respected and could find value in ALL living things. He always did as much as he physically was able to do to help others, most especially his daughter and four grandchildren who adored him beyond any kind of measure. Seeing him and hearing his voice everyday has left such a huge void and wrenching pain in the lives of those closest to him 
 In addition to his wife Maryann, Dean is survived by his only daughter Andrea Shortsianitis and her husband Alec of Tyngsboro, MA; four grandchildren Theodora-Violet, William-Dean, Maryssa-Kate, and Elisabeth-Scarlet; and a sister Ann A. Proyous of Fall River, MA.
 There will be no calling hours. A Funeral Service will take place on Thursday, July 13th, 2017 at 11:00 A.M. at the TRANSFIGURATION GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH on Father John Sarantos Way in Lowell. Burial will follow at the Westlawn Cemetery in Lowell. E-condolences at
