JOHNSTOWN — CRIST – Calvin “Dean,” 60, Johnstown, formerly of Windber, born Aug. 20, 1950, died Nov. 11, 2010, in a tragic car accident. Son of the late John and Betty (Reid) Crist. Survived by wife of 36 years, Kathleen “Kathy” Crist; and children, Lauren, Los Angeles, Calif.; Caitlin, wife of Corey Skula, Dallas, Pa.; Erin, Los Angeles, Calif.; and Jonathan, Philadelphia. Brother of Nan Crist and Ned Crist, Windber; Mark Crist, husband of Nancy Torquato, Plant City, Fla.; and Cathy Pavlosky, Johnstown.

Dean was an avid car enthusiast during the years. In his spare time, he enjoyed cruising around town with Kathy, going to classic car shows with Ned and working on cars with his good friend Sam. He had a deep passion for his craft, from master carpentry to being a jack of all trades. Two weeks prior to his passing, he completed his final master piece, an arts and crafts style home in Dallas, Pa., for Caitlin and Corey. Not only was he a loving, caring father for his children, he also was their best friend. Kathy was the love of Dean’s life and she remained by his side until the very end. Most memorable for his family and friends are his bullish attitude and unique, witty personality.
