He is the second black man to die in Bucks Laurel Avenue residence a fact that has stoked outrage and suspicion among activists and community members.Tim Dean, left, and Mark Chambers in Paris during the summer of 2018.,He was in between, like everyone else, said Mark Chambers, who said he met Dean in 1991 through Lambda Basketball League, a gay mens basketball group.Chambers, 54, said he knew Dean as a caring and outgoing friend who preferred to call on holidays and birthdays, not text, and showed up in person when someone was in need.Tim was not reserved.,The pair also played in the same basketball league in L.A. and traveled to Paris for the Gay Games this summer.You mention his name, and even if you didnt spend time with him, you knew who he was and knew him from his smile.For the last three years, Dean had allowed Ottavio Taddei to live in his spare bedroom while Taddei, a native of Italy, worked as an actor and dancer.Taddei said that as roommates they couldnt have been more different separated in age by 20 years and having a different sexual orientation but Dean was welcoming.,Not someone who had a problem.A close friend of Deans had been coping with addiction, and Dean had gone to great lengths to help his friend by giving him food and mediating conversation with the friends family, Taddei said.Chambers said Dean had long ago grown out of any casual drug use.He talked about the years when he was running wild, Chambers said.,Just because he did porn doesnt equal a drug addict.The fact of the matter: Two black males died in the same apartment and the same man is the last person to see them alive, Sanders said.Thats something deeper to look into than what someone did to make money.In recent years, Dean seemed to have abandoned the adult film roles.In 2015, he graduated with his associates degree from Santa Monica Community College, a moment he said was 52 years in the making.I guess something called life and maybe having a little too much fun kept distracting me, he wrote around the time of his graduation.This degree will not change the world but it will be the first degree earned by anyone in my family.He also began attending One LA, a church on La Brea Boulevard, and Taddei said Dean was open about seeking spiritual guidance.That spiritual commitment led him to the rooftop last year, where he wore a black T-shirt that said Truth and stepped into the pool for his baptism.Afterward, he wrote online about the symbolism of the moment: Im surviving thriving in my life right now.Times staff writers Hailey Branson-Potts and Richard Winton contributed to this report.
