    So very sorry to hear of Deane’s passing. He was so helpful to us in many ways at his Auto repair shop. He was very knowledgeable about many things when we brought something in for repairs. We also enjoyed having him and his daughters as dental patients. Praying that God will sustain and comfort you during your loss.

    You were truly one of my favorite relatives!

    You were such a kind, generous, sweet, and loving man! You had such a great love for the Lord and that love you generously shared with all who would receive!

    You always reminded me of Roy Rogers. As I watch the old movies that Roy Rogers made, I see so much of the Deane that I remember as I was growing up. Roy had his Trigger and you had your white “mustang”.

    Wonderful men! Both had great love for their families and the Lord!

    I miss you so much already! Looking forward to seeing you again – on your “white horse” when the Lord gathers us all together!

    Until then – my dear uncle, Deaney – “Happy Trails to You…Until We Meet Again”.
