Gale Lamar Brammer, 82, of Saratoga passed away Sunday, December 23, 2018, at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born on September 21, 1936, to the late Carl Dudley Brammer and Cora Nadine Hart in Saratoga.
A lifelong resident of Saratoga. Gale was retired from Temple-Inland paper mill after serving his country in the U.S. Air Force. Gale was a rough and tough kind of man with a dry sense of humor. He expressed his emotions through the great meals he would cook. At his leisure, he would go fishing and hunting. At home, one can find him growing vegetables in his garden. It brought him joy when he shared his harvest with all. Gale will be greatly missed by all who loved him.
