LTC Robert "Dean" Gammell
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 9, 1928
Death: Jul. 6, 1998

Robert Dean Gammell was my father-in-law. He always went by the name Dean. He served in the United States Air Force for almost 28 years as an intelligence officer. In fact, when his son Jeff and I married, he was still on active duty, but on terminal leave. He served in the Vietnam War and many assignments.
He married Jerrill Joyce Sauser and they had five children: Jeffrey, Lynn, Mark, Ted, and April.
Dean died suddenly of a massive heart attack while exercising at a local gym on 6 July 1998, just 3 days before his 70th birthday. He is still very much missed by his wife, Jerrill. The two of them used to love going to beaches. In fact, Dean once told me he wanted to visit every beach in the world before he died. He didn't make it, but I hope there are beaches in heaven, and I hope he's sipping a cool one in a lawn chair by an ocean (and I know he has another cool one next to an empty chair, just waiting).
