Obituary of Harold Dean Martin

Harold Dean Martin

June 22, 1949 - April 4, 2023

Grandpa Dean was born in Ontario, Oregon to Beryl and Opal Martin on June 22, 1949.  He married the love of his life Lou Daughtery in 1969.

Grandpa Dean and Grandma Lou raised their 3 children, Bobbie, Ron, and Rex on their farm in Willowcreek, Oregon.

Grandpa Dean was known to all who loved him as the go-to guy, from home repairs to mechanics, he could "Macgyver" anything.  He was a man of simple pleasures.  Give him a pack of smokes, a strong cup of coffee, and a fishing rod, and he was a happy man.

Grandpa Dean passed away in his home at the age of 73 following a long battle with cancer.  He is survived by his sisters Evelyn Dentinger, Luretta Kelso, children Bobbie(Tim), Ron, Rex(Melissa), 11 grandchildren, and numerous great-grandchildren.  He was preceded in death by his wife Lou, parents, Beryl and Opal, and brothers-in-law Lindy and Ben.

We will honor both Grandpa Dean and Grandma Lou with a dual graveside service at Valley View Cemetery in Vale on Saturday, April 29th at 11:00 a.m. A Celebration of Life will immediately follow at the Sagebrush Saloon in Vale.  The only tears welcome are in laughter and stories shared.
