To the Deane family, I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Deane, as I knew him, was truly a one of a kind, great husband, father, cook, and tennis player. Michael and I had some great memories together with Mr. Deane. Some of my favorite ones were quail hunting in George West, Little League at Voss West, and his coaching about life, girls, and how to deal with problem kids in our neighborhood (CJ). I will always remember his story about the bobcat in the suitcase on the side of the road. Phi Alpha, the Phoenix burns bright out of the ashes. All my best, Birdman, Scott Wren.
Liz, Katie and Michael...I was so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. Your dad was such a lovely man. He always made me feel so welcome in your home, and ALWAYS made me laugh. Love you all so much. Hugs to you all, and your beautiful mom. XOXO
To all of Mr. Deane's family and friends,
We are very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one and our alumnus. We are most grateful for all that he did to support deserving Engineering students here and other LSU Organizations. Our thoughts and sympathies are certainly with you. On behalf of the students, faculty and staff of the LSU College of Engineering and Dr. Richard J. Koubek, Dean, and Dr. Dimitris E. Nikitopoulos Department Chair of Mechanical Engineering.
Judy, Katy, Liz, and Michael,
So sad to hear of the loss of David; I know that the joy of his magnetic smile will always make you smile when you think of him! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To the Deane Family:
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your Dad was one of a kind. You are all in my thoughts....
There were so many stories ABOUT David and then there were the ones HE TOLD (with his Cajun accent working) .... all of which were memorable to the degree that David holds a very special place which no one else will fill. David loved music and his close friend David McGuffin did too! I remember times when I played rock 'n roll on the piano (at the Racquet Club AND at McGuffin's house with David and David there singing (mostly off-key) at the top of their lungs ... after many cocktails. Deano was a piece of work, on the tennis court (remember his wide serve to your forehand), around the camp (dove hunting in Mexico), around the piano .... and just about everywhere else! I will miss him greatly! There will never be another like him!
David was my dads best friend and "the funny guy" who called my dad "Foots"! I grew up with him and his family at The Racquet Club and have such fond memories of the time we spent together. His energy and presence always lit up the room. He will be missed tremendously. We will miss you David! xxx
What a smile! What a life! What a man!
Everyone adored him! God Bless.

Dear Judy, Michael, Katie and Liz,
I have known David for my entire life and think of him as "the other David" to my Dad! What a team those two made! He always had a smile and a million funny, outrageous stories, a true honor to have had him in my life. Love Lisa
God bless you and your family during this tough time. I pray God wraps his arms around you tight and gives you just what you need.
praying for your comfort
There was only one David Deane. You just have to laugh when you think about him. He and George had some fun times.
Our prayers are with the family.
Janet & George Randolp
Dear Liz and Katie, your family is in our thoughts and prayers. We always enjoyed running into all of you at the Racquet Club. May you feel God's comfort during this difficult time. Love, Carrie and Jeff knowles
Judy, my thoughts and prayers are with you and family at this difficult time. David was a positive, happy, and fun loving person to have on our many dove hunts, fishing trips, and golf outings. He crammed 100 years of living into 77 years of Christian life. He will be missed, Bob Jenkins
We were so sorry to learn of David`s recent death.
We loved the times spent with all of you and will miss his wry sense of humor.
Tommy will also miss the tennis games and laughter there.
You`re all in our prayers.
Eugenia and Tommy
Our prayers go out to the Deane family. Knew David for a number of years as a student at LSU and for annual LSU football games. Will forever have fond memories of our times together.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Dean family on the loss of a great man. I enjoyed playing tennis with David at HRC and sharing LSU stories with him. He will be missed.
Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I've known David since before I was in kindergarten. For several years I was the only girl in a neighborhood of boys. We built forts together, played war games and threw camphor berries down on passing cars from the tree in front of the Deane home on Pine Street. We lost contact during our adult years but I will always look back on those carefree childhood days with fond memories.
My prayers are with the family of David Deane. I was a couple of years behind David at Fortier, but knew him. Our ranks are thining with each passing years, but our memories never forget classmates at Fortier. Grace and Peace. Edwin (Ed) W. Stock, Jr.
My Condolence to the Dean Family. May you find comfort in this Bible text at Psalm 145:14
David & I started high school together then off to LSU where we were together in the same ROTC company for four years. While at LSU we worked at Baker's Cafe which we agreed was the best job we ever had. We met annually w/several other waiters/lifelong friends for a Tiger game and the telling/retelling of old stories. David never let the facts stand in the way of a good tale. Our group will continue to meet but it will never be the same w/o David.
I will miss the best friend I ever had.
Judy I loved your husband seems like I knew him for my whole life .Thank you for the wonderful friendship with my family.My thoughts and prayer are with you and your family.All my love marshall kottler
We will sure miss David. My Dad and I had many great times playing charity golf tournaments with him and the late Charlie Lutz. Our thoughts and prayers to Judy, Katie, Al and the rest of the family.
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. David was one of a kind--always making us smile! Love to you all.
Judy our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your 1st cousin Justin Denechaud Douglass, Jr. and wife Marilyn
David and I worked together at CBRE and went dove hunting together every year. A great guy who never met a stranger. I'm proud to have called him a friend.
Judy, We are thinking of you & your family at this time. David will be missed. Your children & grandchildren can surely help you through this difficult letting go. Love to you all.
I miss you very much.
I am so sorry for your loss. I had the opportunity of playing tennis with David for several years and I always enjoyed it very much. I will miss him on the court.
Judy, I'll always remember how much fun we had in Briargrove Park...long ago! I used to be Jayne Johnston (now
remarried). Blessings to you and your family. I'm so sad for your loss. David was one of a kind!
Linda, Michael, Katie and Liz,
I'm so sorry for your loss. David, Bob and I had some fun times as young cousins. Thinking of you,
Always had a big smile on his face, always happy to see you....what a wonderful guy, he will be missed.
I met David at the Houston Racquet Club and always enjoyed his positive spirit. We were lucky to know him.
