Louis T. Stamm III Marine veteran

November 26, 1992

Louis T. Stamm III, a Baltimore native who was a retired master gunnery sergeant in the Marine Corps, died Sunday of cancer at his home in Merrimack, N.H.

He was also an assistant instructor in a Junior Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps program at a Manchester, N.H., high school.

Graveside services for Mr. Stamm, who was 51, will be conducted at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Maryland Veterans Cemetery, 11501 Garrison Forest Road.

He joined the Marine Corps in 1960 after his graduation from City College.

From 1971 until 1975, he was a recruiter, first in Parkville and then in Salisbury.

In 1969 and 1970, he served in Vietnam in a Marine Corps special forces unit and was awarded the Bronze Star.

He also served aboard Navy ships in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Western Pacific.

His recruiting duties also took him to the Midwest and in 1981 to Merrimack, where he was an instructor for other recruiters in New England.

After his retirement in 1987, he attended Hesser College in Manchester, earned a business administration degree in Nashua, from Franklin Pierce College and, in 1991, he received a bachelor's degree in history from Notre Dame College in Manchester.

Until he began teaching in the Navy program at West High School in Manchester in 1988, he worked part time as a real estate agent in Nashua.

He was a member of the Alpha Sigma Lambda honor society for students in continuing education programs; the Richard K. Harvall Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars; the Force Recon Association for Marine Corps Veterans, and the 29th Regiment, a Revolutionary War re-enactment group in Vermont.

He is survived by his wife, the former Christine Finley; a son, Andrew Stamm of Merrimack; two daughters, Amy Stamm of Merrimack and Jody Stamm of Myerstown, Pa.; and his mother, Doris Stamm of Towson.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Junior Naval ROTC program at West High School, 9 Notre Dame Ave., in Manchester.
