Glenn Sandstoe Obituary

Glenn Dean Sandstoe of Des Moines passed away at his home on Friday, March 22. He was 87.

A special wake and full military honors will be scheduled and announced at a later date.

Dean was born March 3, 1937, in Beaman, IA, the son of Ingwald and Opal Sandstone. He lived his childhood years in Beaman, helping his parents operate their full-service gas station and working on their farm. Following graduation from Beaman High School in 1955, Dean joined the US Navy. After completing basic training, he was assigned a position in the electrical department of the aircraft carrier USS Hornet. He served his entire enlistment on the carrier, rising to the rank of Second Class Petty Officer. Dean was very proud of his Navy career, and with a little encouragement, he would enjoy sharing his many good memories and favorite stories.

After completing military service, Dean enrolled in college. He graduated in 1965 with a business degree from Midwestern College in Denison, IA. Armed with a strong base in accounting and business, he joined the Des Moines Child & Adolescent Guidance Center as a business manager. He held this leadership position for almost 30 years until his retirement.

Dean is preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Christine Sandstoe Burton.

He is survived by a brother, Gerald of San Diego, CA, and several nieces and nephews.
