On July 5, our beloved father, Dean Stogsdill, was called home to be with the Lord. Although his family and friends greatly miss him, we are rejoicing that he is "home free" where there is no more suffering, no more pain and no more goodbyes.
He was a longtime resident of Klamath Falls, where he had Dean's Barber Shop for over 30 years. He truly enjoyed watching his young customers grow up, get married and then bring their children. After retiring, Dad moved to Central Point, Ore., where he gladly retired his snow-blower. What he loved most was his family, God and long walks on the beach.
Our dad led by example. He was a hard-working, genuine man of faith that always put other people before himself. He never felt that people should make a fuss over him and with that in mind, it was no suprise that Dad did not want any kind of funeral or memorial service. However, we, his children, Gary Vader, Pat Palazzolo, and Susan Cox, will honor our dad with a celebration of his life, July 25, at — P.M. at Eagle Point National Cemetery, followed by the inurnment of his cremains.
All are welcome to attend or stop by afterwards for a visit at his home in Central Point.
