E. Dean Gamble, 60, of Casper, Wyoming passed away on November 8, 2012 surrounded by his loving family. As a man who never met a stranger and genuinely loved life, Dean touched many lives through his kind, caring, and generous nature.
Dean was born May 22, 1952 in Borger, TX to Bobby Lee and Myrna (Tietz) Gamble. He was raised in Texas and Oklahoma and graduated from Sooner High School in Bartlesville, OK in 1970. Dean held various positions in the oil fields in Wyoming and Russia. He enjoyed working at Wal-Mart after his retirement, though his favorite "job" was being the World's Best Grandfather, and indulging Griz and Thomas J, the cats he loved. As an avid Harley rider, Dean's adventures led him on yearly rallies, runs, and benefits. He also relished the camaraderie at the Casper Old Chicago where he completed numerous World Beer Tours and proudly sported the title as "The King" – complete with his own throne.
Dean was preceded in death by his father, Bobby Lee Gamble, and sister, Leigh Ann (Lulu) Bridges. He is survived by his children: daughter, Shasta Fisher of Los Angeles, CA, and son, Eric Gamble of Seattle, WA; his mother, Myrna Gamble, Ramona, OK; sisters: Jackie Bullen, Bartlesville, OK; Bobbi Wiggins, Yuba City, CA; Linda Boulanger, Bartlesville, OK; friend and adopted daughter Samantha Brunink of Casper, WY; Grandchildren: Jaramie Gamble, Addison Fisher, and Lilly Brunink.
A celebration of Dean's life was held Saturday, November 10, 2012 at Old Chicago in Casper, WY. He will be laid to rest in a family ceremony in Oklahoma at a later date.
