In Loving Memory of Michael "Dean" Gee

Over a year ago on July 14, 2010; 16 yr old Dean Gee who was a 2nd Dan black belt in the Tang Soo Do federation from Michigan was in a fatal car accident. Our Federation is at a great loss. He was a nice young man with a Tang Soo Do heart. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to his family and friends.
