A truly remarkable man, Retired Commander Dean Stavert, a member of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office of over 32 years, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on September 4, 2021 in Manteca, CA.
   Dean was born on September 12, 1960, in Castro Valley. Dean grew up in Livermore and graduated from Livermore High School in 1978.   Dean then decided he wanted to become a sheriff’s deputy and followed in the footsteps of his stepfather, Bud, graduating from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office 78th Academy. Dean was assigned to Santa Rita Jail, Eden Township Substation, Glenn Dyer Jail, Bailiff and Marshals, Civil and Transportation, Dublin Police Services, AC Transit, Regional Training Center, Office of Emergency Services and County Wide Services. In addition to working the many duty stations, Dean managed the Oakland Raiders security detail for many years.
   Dean was admired by all who had the pleasure to have met him for a brief minute or for a career-long friendship. He did countless good deeds and always had a friendly smile and a strong handshake, yet, he was loving, thoughtful and appreciative of all the people who cared for him. He loved law enforcement and his beloved ACSO Family.
   Dean retired from the Sheriff’s Office and returned to work as a retired annuitant.  He was assigned as an investigator to the Alameda County’s Waste Management Authority.  It was due to his employment there that Dean became very passionate about recycling and leaving a better footprint on this Earth.
   Dean joined the Oakland Raiders in 2013 as Vice President of Security until he was no longer able to work due to his illness.  Dean helped oversee security practices at the Oakland Coliseum, the Alameda practice facility and other properties.  As the Raiders developed and built Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, he oversaw the design of the building’s security systems.  His fingerprints are all over the Gameday Operations Center, the Law Enforcement Offices, the perimeter security and the surveillance systems. Dean poured his heart and soul into the design of those areas.   
   Dean is survived by his wife, Carol (Alvarez), children, Heather, Ryan, Erik (ACSO deputy), Alexandra, Sean, James and Frank, grandchildren Lilly and Dean, his namesake. He was proud of all of them and loved them dearly. His mother Wilma and stepfather William (Bud) Harlan, sister, Sheila, brother, Terry, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins and extended family members.  His father, James Stavert precedes him in death.
   Dean was an avid fan of the Oregon Ducks, Oakland A’s, Oakland Raiders now the Las Vegas Raiders, his annual golf trip with the “boys”, traveling, drinking Scotch whisky and dancing with his wife.   Dean leaves a legacy of enjoying and living life to the fullest. He was an amazing husband, son, father, papa, uncle and friend. Dean has now transitioned to Heaven where we will someday hug him again.
