During this time he met a pretty young woman named Ida Thurston, they were married in October 1952. For a time they lived in Pilot Rock where he worked in the mill. They returned once again to the ranch where they resided until he retired in 1994. At about this time he and Ida returned to her family home in Umatilla where they stayed until 2015; when they became a part of the Guardian Angel family. Deane had a jolly and joking disposition that made his caregivers smile daily. Upon moving to Guardian Angel they were “bonus parents “ to Don & Mary Ellen Tracy and Becky & Gordy Brockman. We counted ourselves blessed everyday to have them in our life’s. Deane will be greatly missed by those who knew him. He is survived by his wife of more than 65 years Ida Friedly.
