Dean Punteney, 1924 - 2017


Dean Punteney, Jan. 8, 1924 — March 10, 2017

Long-time resident Dean Punteney passed away on Friday, March 10, 2017 in Placerville, Calif. He was born on Jan. 8, 1924, in Bayard, Neb., to Laurence and Laura Punteney. He was preceded in death by three wives, Alvetta, Bonnie and Virginia; his siblings, Rex, Claire and George; and his children, Wayne, Katherine and Trudy. He is survived by his dearest friend, Glen Wiley; his sister, Florence; his children, Karen (Ken), Dianna (Ross), George (Dona), Eugene, Danny, Dennis, Camilla (Lance), Brenda (Kevin), Warren, Kendall (An-Marie) and Koreena (Greg); his grandchildren, Ross Jr. (Jen), Levi, Nora (Jason), Eli, Jennifer (Jason), Landon, Angie and Christy (Jesse); and his great-grandchildren, Ava, Grace, Lily, Bonita, Jake, Spencer, Marcus, Vienna, Leighton, Russell, Wesley and Katlyn.

Dean had deep American roots that went back to the Wild West with his great uncle being one of the members of the Hole in the Wall Gang. He rode the range on horseback in his early years and was a farmer until 1942, when he joined the service to serve our country in the U.S. Army Air Corps at Watson Lake in the Yukon Territory. Once he completed his service, he became a dam builder and an accomplished carpenter known for his tenacity for precision and hired as such to help build our state capital. His work took him all over the country. However, he eventually settled down in Placerville.

Dean loved western movies, talking about life on the farm, roller skating, his service to our country and honky tonkin’. A part of our history has passed on. You will be missed, Daddy Dean.

Friends are invited to join the family at a graveside service on Thursday, March 16 at 1 p.m. at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery, 4581 Heavenly Ridge Road in Placerville. Arrangements entrusted to Chapel of the Pines.
