Dean Michael Pereira

Dean Michael Pereira was tragically killed on December 21, 2019 at the young age of 29.

Dean was born in Sacramento, California on May 5th, 1990 to Steven M. Pereira and Tamra L. Pereira. He was raised and lived his entire life in Elk Grove, California. Dean lived a life in the natural outdoors, fishing and      hunting, just the way he wanted to, just the way his dad taught him.  He showed by example that a simple life was his choice, most fulfilling to him, and we respected him for that. The 29 years of life he spent on this earth were completely filled with compassionate adventures with family and friends.  He worked at Stagecoach Restaurant for 12 years where he served many beloved customers.

So many lives have been touched by Dean. His lessons taught us to live life to our best every day and have a high quality of life. We admired his actions, his love, laughter, and love for nature. We will miss his smile, golden heart, and the stunning photos representing his life adventures with the beyond wise quotes that told us of secrets from his mind, heart, and humor.

Dean leaves behind his loving mother, Tammy Pereira, his younger sister Sarah (Bradley) Whitney, and many other family members and friends.

Loving friends and family are invited to a celebration of his life on January 4th, 2020. Please contact his family to inform them of your attendance and for further information (916)753-517 or
