Chris Michael Dammann passed away in his Winthrop home on Sept. 16, 2019, at the age of 65. Chris was a long-time resident of Winthrop, watching it grow from a small quiet town to the busy destination it is today. Chris, the youngest of three children, was born on Oct. 2, 1953, to Henry “Hank” and Jean Dammann in Brewster.
Chris graduated from Winthrop High School in 1972. He joined the U.S. Army following graduation and was stationed in Germany after completing basic training. Later in his life he worked for the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife at the Winthrop National Fish Hatchery. Chris began his time with Fish and Wildlife in 1994 as a volunteer for several months and ultimately gained full-time employment until his 2014 retirement due to medical reasons.
He was an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle. His passion was working antler with which he created many artistic pieces from cribbage boards to candelabras to belt buckles. Chris was a good friend to many people with different backgrounds and was considered to have a generous nature.
Chris is survived by his sons John (Cady) Dammann, Matthew (Nicole) Dammann, and Daniel (Kate) Dammann; his stepsons Steven Farmer and Thomas Robertson; and stepdaughter Kelly Robertson.
At his request, no services will be held. Condolences may be sent to 3942 NE Blueridge Dr., East Wenatchee, WA 98802.
