We are saddened to learn of the death 15 Oct 2015 of our long-time friend, distinguished WW II veteran and fellow member of the Roane County Historical Society, Denver Ray Gandee, Sr. We extend our sincere sympathy to his family and friends. He was a former resident of Roane County, residing at the Parkersburg Care Center, and most recently did an interview for Roane County's documentary film for the "Journey Into the Wild & Wonderful" series produced by Wayne Worth and also did a video on his WW II experiences. You can see those videos on our Face Book page or visit the Journey into the Wild & Wonderful website.
