Tammy S. Dunston Casper passed away peacefully at her home in Seaford, on Saturday, March 14, 2020.
Tammy was born in Salisbury, Md. on June 2, 1960, a daughter of Chuck Dunston of Salisbury and Charlotte Neill Melvin of Salisbury. She is also survived by her stepmother, Joyce Dunston and stepfather, Norris Melvin.
Tammy and her husband William lived and raised their children in Newark, Del. That is where Tammy held her career as a production manager for Autotote Systems and Rodel before moving to Seaford in 2004 so she and her husband could enjoy their grandchildren on a daily basis. Tammy enjoyed motorcycle riding with her husband and spending time with her grandchildren and this past year she was beyond excited to become a great-grandmother to Brantley Kennedy. Tammy enjoyed a weekend party, shopping with her daughter, cook-outs, and time spent with her family.
Tammy is survived by her loving husband, William H. Casper, Jr. of 43 years. They were married in Salisbury, Md. on Feb. 5, 1977. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter, Jaime Casper Kennedy (Brian) of Bridgeville; her son, Aaron Casper (Dixie) of Salisbury; six grandchildren, Tyler Kennedy of Bridgeville, Ethan Casper of Seaford, Jacob Kennedy of Bridgeville, Chloe Casper, Anna Casper, and Lily Casper all of Salisbury; a great-grandson, Brantley Kennedy, son of Tyler Kennedy; siblings, Brian Melvin (Chris) of Delmar, Lee Melvin (Darlene) of Texas, Jackie Dunston (Jeanette) of Salisbury, Sherry Dunston Gladden (Brian) of Salisbury; step-sister, Alisa Melvin Bloodsworth (David) of Delmar; sister-in-law, Terry Casper Brown (Bobby) of Salisbury; brother-in-law, Ricky Casper of Salisbury; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
A Celebration of Life will be held the beginning of June, when she would be celebrating her 60th birthday. As soon as a date is confirmed the family will share it on social media and will be in contact with family and friends to share the details.
