WILLIE DEATON, 87, Henryville, IN, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on December 22, 2016, at the Robley Rex VA Hospital in Louisville, KY.
Willie was born on July 9, 1929, to the late Dan and Dora Deaton in Kentucky. His family moved to Indiana when he was a young boy, and there he stayed. Willie learned how to work hard and contribute, which aided him well when called to serve his country in the Korean War.
While serving in the Korean War, his company commander asked him if he knew how to run equipment. Sure, he did! He just didn’t tell him it was only a tractor. They put him in a crane. At one point his crane was the only one operable in Korea. How? He had just read the entire manual! This attitude permeated every aspect of his life. Willie was the owner of Deaton’s Excavating, as well as a heavy equipment operator, foreman, superintendent, and a 57-year member of the IUOE Local 181. He was a member of the Freetown Church of Christ.
Willie married the love of his life, his “pretty woman” Maude (Guernsey) Deaton on January 29, 1955. They had been married almost 63 years. Together they had six children: son William (Amanda) Deaton and daughters Wilda Hartzog, Colleen Gentile, Karen (Barry) DeWitt, Kathy Deaton, who preceded him in death, and Jennifer (Jon) Tucker. These children blessed him with eleven grandchildren: Bobby and Bradley Gritt, Tara, Tess, Tony, and Tristan Gentile, Fletch and Ryann Tucker, Oliver and Knox Blincoe, and Ellis Deaton.
Willie was also preceded in death by brothers Mack, Fletch, Raymond, Clyde, and Bradley Deaton, and sisters Mabel Oliver and Bertha Curtis. Other survivors include brother Reynolds J. Deaton, and sisters Theda Sexton and Bonnie Storen.
Willie was a man among men. He was “The Boss” and always The Boss of the Garden. Willie left a legacy that hard work and ingenuity will get you anywhere. He was never afraid to tackle an obstacle, and he never quit! In short, “Where there was a Willie, there was a way!” His extreme generosity was evident to those who knew him best. With Willie, loyalty was a virtue…knowing no season.
Even in his death, Willie is helping others. He donated his body to Indiana University Medical School for teaching and research. He believed this would make a significant contribution that would benefit the quality of life and the care of the living.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
