Louis W. Deeck Jr. (Louie), born September 27, 1952, passed away on March 24, 2023, of Savannah, GA, formerly of Woodbury Heights, NJ.
Lou grew up in Center City Mantua and was a 1970’s graduate of Clearview High School – where he made lifelong friends that he still spoke to daily.
He was a self-employed painting contractor who was lucky enough to have worked alongside his father and also his son.
He met and married Anne in 1975 and together they raised their two children, Dana and Jason. They lived in Woodbury Heights for over 40 years.
Lou was very active in his community; he was a former town councilman, served on the planning board, coached baseball and was Treasurer of the Athletic Association.
Lou was a member of the Pitman Masonic Lodge and Glassboro Forest Tall Cedars.
He was an avid golfer but also loved to hunt and was a member of the Janvier Deer Club for 38 years.
Lou and Anne loved to travel! They’d get in their car, open up their map and off they’d go! Each year they looked forward to meeting up with longtime friends in Myrtle Beach. Cruises were among their favorite vacations.
He loved a good hand of three card poker!
He loved to eat and he loved to tell you what he ate. He was a storyteller! With his legs crossed and a cigarette in his hand he’d tell you stories and have you laughing. He remembered every little detail.
One good thing about Facebook was it got him back in touch with his cousins and family.
Most of all he loved to talk about his grandchildren and their accomplishments, such as Dalton going into the Air Force and recently receiving Airman of the Year, Jaci succeeding at her job and being a great mom, Presly being dual enrolled at GSU while still being a high school student, and Hayden excelling at softball and volleyball. He was so very proud of all them!
Lou is survived by his loving wife Anne (nee Parker)
Devoted father of Dana Interlante (Stephen) and Jason Deeck (Melissa)
Loving grandfather to Dalton Interlante (Jaclyn), Jaci Shuman (Mason), Presly Carlucci, Hayden Deeck, and great grandson Travis Shuman
His final days were made more comfortable by the caring nurses and aides from Hospice of Savannah – with special thanks to Robyn and DaLawn
