Jerome (Jerry) H. Deeney

June 1, 1941 - July 15, 2013

Jerry lost his last battle with cancer on July 15 with his family by his side. He was born in Great Falls, Montana to Iola and James Deeney, and was a longtime resident of Belmont, California. He is survived by his wife Betty, son Jeffrey, daughter in law Janette, and brother Jim Deeney.

Jerry attended Washington State University, then served in the army and was attached to the Embassy in Turkey. After the service, he moved to California and was a Casualty Adjuster for CSAA for 35 years.

Jerry enjoyed sports, both as a participant and as a fan. He was an avid golfer and excellent bowler, with six 300 games to his name. Jerry was a 49er season ticket holder for 45 years. He also enjoyed his involvement with SIRS.

Jerry was a quiet, caring person with a quick wit. His family, friends, and pets were most important to him.
