Absolutely fantastic work being done by George's family in making a change with the petitions and also continuing his legacy.
R.I.P. Chief White Owl.
I watched him when I was a kid years ago as he worked the Elmira, New York area. I've been in the business for 38 years and never met him. Would have been nice to talk to him.
I remember him from Pittsburgh Wrestling when I was very young. I remember he had his leg broken in ring. Great performer. RIP
we love you chief white owl " Anthony Mossow Oneida wolf clan native American"
RIP Chief White Owl. Standing...
May you Rest In Peace. You are the very definition of an inspiring legend :-)
Rest In Peace--I remember as a kid watching you on TV.
I was fortunate enough to get an interview with Chief White Owl when I was a third grader doing a school report on what I wanted to be when I grew up. He spent over a half hour with me and told me to be a wrestler, I should exercise and go out for every sport I could but to focus first on my education and make my goal to get a degree. After all these years, I still recall how encouraging and kind he was to me.

I sure do miss my Uncle George! We didn't get to spend much time together over the years but the few visits we had I will always remember. From a wedding in Ohio when I was just a kid to my graduation at Navy Boot Camp in Orlando. I have vivid memories of how much fun he was to be around and regret not making time to be around precious family more often. We are a lot closer to Aunt Patty with our latest move to NE Florida and look forward to catching back up with all of our south Florida family soon. I love you Uncle George.
Sorry for the Family's loss
Pat and family,
Good luck on your fight for nursing home reform. Thank you for your efforts. We will all have that issue one day, for ourselves or our loved ones. So sorry for your loss.
May the Great Spirit watch over you, and may you be at peace
Dearest Debbie, I did not know your Father but I extend to you my deepest condolences, Love Diana

Love Shhirley (Yocum) Oyler Pataskala, Ohio
Ijust looked up the Chief as some of us were talking about fond childhood memories. I remember watching on tv and then getting to go to the studio with my dad. Chief White Owl seemed like a giant to a 6 or 7 year old! He shook my hand and gave me a quarter and I felt such awe and recognized what a kind man he was (as little kids are good at!). Blessings to his family and I am glad they had him for so long!

Just a note to express my sympathy to those who knew and loved "Chief White Owl".
I only 'knew' him from watching him wrestle
on TV (Buffalo area in the 60s)but He was the one wrestler I liked the most growing up. Best wishes to you and your famil
hi mrs.dahmer my name is thelma gruber/lambert., my father ira lambert [aka] LUCKY LAMBERT knew your husband possibley you?, my father quit wrestling before i was born  but he often spoke of "CHIEF WHITE OWL" MY FATHER ALSO PASSED AWAY JAN. 8 2000., SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS
Aunt Pat, Deb, Steve,
Uncle George will be missed - I think back to all the fun times we used to have when he would come visit us in Ohio. His endless stories and jokes will always be remembered. He would always bring a smile to our faces no matter the situation. I love you all!
Well I guess this is good by grandpa George. I never got to see you much because I lived so far away but the times we shared we always nice ones. You were always so carring and sweet. I wish we could have seen more of each other. May you rest in peace. Steve, Dalton and Grandma Patrica im am very sorry for your loss. My god be with you.
Megan "Meggy" Johnson
We was together 49 and a half years.I seen you go through lots of bumps & bruises,1964 you broke your leg in 3 places,in 8 weeks you was back in the ring. In 1973 you went through a tumor in your voice box and you came through that in 3 weeks,the Doctor said you won't be able to talk for 6 weeks,you talked the same day.In 1988 you went through a knee replacement and 4 weeks later you was fine.In 2003 you had a massive heart attack,you came back on the third shock,even the Doctors said you was a fighter.You said your father always said to pray & call on our Jesus,you recovered within a year.In 2006 you was diagnosed with Alzheimers, but you stayed strong. February 27th 2008 you went to assisted living. May 16th you went to the hospital and 7 days later the battle was over. No more pain & suffering.May you rest in peace.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!
YOUR WIFE PATRICIA (MOOSE)
SEE YOU AGAIN SOMEDAY!!!
Aunt Patty, Debbie, and Steve (and youngins)
Words do seem so inadequate in times of such sadness and loss. Uncle George was loved by anyone who knew him or even just plain met him! He was such a people person. He enjoyed making everyone laugh -and that he did indeed do! One thing was always clear, though, his first priority was always to his family. His love and admiration for his family was always evident (even to strangers). He would do anything for you all and it was evident that the opposite was true - you all would do anything for him.
Christmas of 2007, Aunt Patty, Uncle George, Mom, Tonya, Robert, and myself sat around reminiscing about the good ole' wrestling days - I could not tell who enjoyed more Uncle George or Aunt Patty :) - perhaps both equally. Either way, it was a wonderful couple of hours surfing online and reflecting about matches and wrestlers and hearing stories about "behind the scenes."
Uncle George will be missed greatly but never forgotten!
You are all in my thoughts and prayers!
Debbie , working with you over the years, I've come to know you as a friend who has a big heart and someone you can count on. You always seem to make my day better. I also know you and your family have gone through so much lately. I've seen how this pains you , but you somehow manage to stay strong. I guess it's safe to say , you've gotta lotta love and lotta fight in you.
I met your Dad once , I'll always remember our brief meeting. It was a day,several years ago , I was on the work room floor at the post office,when the employee door bell rang. I answered the door and there was a man I never met, but before he introduced himself and asked for you ,there was no mistaking who it was. I knew right away ,from that big warm friendly smile upon his face that he was Debbie's dad. I just want to express my sincere condolences to you , your mom Patricia , your brother Steven and all your family. I know with love and pride you'll keep George "Chief White Owl" Dahmer in your hearts and minds forever.
Growing up in the fifties as a child in a small town in Ohio, my eyes were always glued on Saturday morning to Lex's Life Wrestling from Columbus, Ohio where "The Chief" was a regular participant. Fifty years have since past and these strong memories still remain. Although I never had the pleasure to meet him, my heart is saddened by his passing. I rejoice in learning of his commitment to our Lord and Savior.
Steve (Cowboy) and Debbie:
Though I only met the Chief a couple of times I was impressed by his clear and obvious love for his family. May the memory of his love and strength be yours forever.
Condolences, on behalf of everyone at Canvas Chronicle.
Hoot you sweet, wonderful man. I will miss your mischievious smile and your hugs. I will always love you.
Well Pops your up there with the father of us all,keeping watch.Thank you for showing me how a father really loves his children.You will be sadly missed,lil Katie told me to tell you to give KImmy and lil Ella a big hug and kiss.And to tell Jesus she loves him... Me too.love you Hootie!!!
Steve (Cowboy) and family; our prayers, thoughts and sympathies are with you during this difficult time. From what you have shared with me about him, he is a gentle man in a more peaceful place. Steve, I'm sure you received your admirable qualities, characteristics and strength from him. Continue to stay close to our Lord Jesus. We will include both your family and the 'Cheif' in our prayers tonight.
Hoot, Your name fit you well!!! With deepest sympathy to your family. May you soar with the eagles and run with buffalo. God Bless you all.
Love Cookie and the Metz Boyz
With all my sympathy and respects during this time.
Hoot, I will miss your hearty laugh and that wonderful cologne you used to where. I guess Kimmie and Marcus missed it too and wanted you there with them.. Tell them hello for me. You will truly be missed.
I am the proud son of my Dad and my hero.I grew up with this brave Chief and wonderful father.He made me the warrior that I am today and his legacy will live on.Chief White Owl didn't lose this fight because he left the ring to go home to our JESUS. He passed the spear on to me.He always taught me to fight for what you believe in.I promise you Dad, I'll fight to the end and I know you and God got my back. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU DEARLY. CHIEF WHITE OWL THE LEGEND AND THE KING OF THE TOMAHAWK CHOP WILL NEVER DIE AS LONG AS I HAVE BREATH IN MY BODY.We've got a few really big fights coming up Dad and I know we will win and I promise you I'll fight to the death.I LOVE YOU!!!!! 4 LIFE
YOUR PROUD WARRIOR SON!!!
