Dennis D. Dammerman

Nov. 4, 1945 - July 23, 2013

SARATOGA SPRINGS N.Y. — Dennis D. Dammerman, 67, of Wellington, Florida, and Saratoga Springs, New York, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 23, 2013, at Saratoga Hospital, surrounded by his family. Born November 4, 1945, to Louise Lichtenstein and the late Morris Dammerman, Dennis grew up in Grand Mound, Iowa, graduated from Central Community High School in DeWitt, Iowa, and earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Dubuque.

Dennis built a 38-year career with General Electric Company, first joining GE’s Financial Management Program and ultimately reaching the posts of Chief Financial Officer of GE, Chairman of GE Capital, and Vice Chairman of GE. He also served on various boards throughout his career, including BlackRock Inc., Adirondack Trust Company, Skidmore College, New York Racing Association, Saratoga Automobile Museum, Fairfield University, Swiss Re, Genworth Financial, Capmark Financial Group and Discover Financial Services; and he was a founding member of Wellington Equestrian Partners. While retired, he was recruited by the U.S. Treasury Department to join the American International Group Board of Directors during the financial crisis, where he was instrumental in rescuing AIG.

Dennis’ family and friends will remember him for his intelligence and generous spirit, for sharing vibrant meals and a busy kitchen, for the enjoyment he found in horse racing and show jumping, and for sharing his love of both classic and contemporary automobiles.

He is survived by his wife Marsha Finn Dammerman of Wellington, Florida; his mother, Louise Lichtenstein of DeWitt, Iowa; his stepmother, Viola Dammerman of DeWitt, Iowa; his mother in-law, Phyllis A. Finn of Frankfort, New York; his son, David Dammerman and wife Judith Dore of Saratoga Springs, New York; his daughter, Heather Dammerman Wesoloski and husband David of Fairfield, Connecticut; his sister, Carol Galloway of Grand Mound, Iowa; his brother, Randy Burmester and wife Joanne of Saratoga Springs, New York; his brother, Russ Fey and wife Leona of Phoenix, Arizona; his brother, Douglas Burmester and wife Sandra of Stanwood, Washington; his three grandchildren, Eric Dammerman of Saratoga Springs, New York, and Craig and Emma Wesoloski of Fairfield, Connecticut; mother of David and Heather, Patricia Dammerman of Southport, Connecticut; and many loving nieces and nephews. Dennis was preceded in death by his father, his brother, Larry Dammerman; his stepfather, Donald Fey; his stepfather, Glenn Lichtenstein; his father in-law, Thomas J. Finn, and his brother in-law, Dwain Galloway.
