Dean V. Chandler


He and his beloved wife, Margie, were married in Montreal in 1954. Over the years, they travelled frequently to the far corners of the earth, visiting over 75 countries.

Dean was an avid fisherman and hunter and had many adventures with his son and friends to the sub-arctic regions of Quebec and Labrador, as well as Newfoundland and Montana.

Dean considered himself extremely fortunate to have been born an American and was immensely proud of his country. He thoroughly believed in free enterprise and the boundless opportunities afforded to all.

For more than forty years, Dean and Margie enjoyed their home on Lake Champlain and their magnificent view of the Green Mountains of Vermont. He dearly loved his wife, his family, and his many friends, and he and Margie took great pleasure in sharing their beautiful homes in Port Douglas, N.Y., St. Alexis des Monts, Quebec and St. Petersburg, Fla. with all.

Dean is survived by his wife, Margaret; his sister Margaret Ellen Turner; his son, Mark Chandler and wife Eva; his daughter Diane Carroll (James), his daughter Deborah Chandler-Van Herp and husband Gary; eight grandchildren who loved and admired him deeply; and two great-grandchildren.

There will be no calling hours. A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m., Sunday, May 5, at the United Methodist Church in Keeseville. Friends wishing to remember Dean may make a memorial contribution to his beloved Siena College or to Suncoast Hospice who helped give Dean a peaceful and dignified sunset.
