  • Remembering Eddie Dean Gant

    Posted on 3/27/17 - by Robyn Fuller Hantelman (niece of Eddie) robyn.fuller@icloud.com
    Eddie also had a number of half-siblings, one of whom is my father. My dad was born in 1938 in Memphis as well, and had joined the Air Force (as did my dad's full brother, Jerry, who is the oldest of my grandmother Margaret's children. My father is second-born.) My father has fairly advanced Alzheimer's but we were aware of "Uncle Eddie" at a young age and learned about honor and respect for our personal connection to the community of people who lost loved ones to the ultimate sacrifice.
    My life has brought me, my husband (USMC Reservist), and my son to Columbus, MS and we plan to visit Grenada soon to pay our respects.

  • Loved to Hunt

    Eddie Dean was my first cousin and he loved to hunt and did not mind taking me hunting. Although Dad gets credit for teaching me to hunt, Eddie Dean never seemed to mind to take his young cousin along. Thanks Eddie Dean!!

    You are still missed!
