My brother Robert Earl Bolden (better known as dean) I was born in Tacoma Washington on July 25, 1961 to parents Walter Carr and Mary Harris Bolden. Robert was the second boy in the fifth child out of seven children.
Growing up, Dean was the coolest big brother anyone could have. He roughed us up as kids but it was all out of love. Playing basketball was a joy of his and he was eager to learn in school. Dean was quick to let you know that he’s a professor (smile). I Dean graduated from Lincoln high school and later on begin to start a family with his lifelong sweetheart Sabrina Raulins. They went I want to have side beautiful children together.
Dan enjoyed having such as fishing, barbecuing, watching sports, listening to music, but most importantly he loved eating a good meal and spending quality time with his family. We will all miss his infectious smile, smothering teddy bear hugs, catchphrases, and all the special memories we shared. We love you Dean and will never forget you.
Dean leaves behind precious memories to his children Nyeesha Bolden, Xavier Bolden, Shakira Bolden, Davontae Bolden, Deandre Bolden (deceased). Sisters Cindy, Patty, Verita, Brother Kenny, 10 grandchildren, Nephews, Nieces, Cousins, extended family Brock, Babbs and sorrowing friends.
