Orville Deaton
Birth: 4 Aug 1940
Death: 17 Jan 2016

Orville, fondly referred to as O. D. was born on August 4, 1940 in Hazard, Perry County, Kentucky and passed away on Sunday, January 17, 2016 in Long Beach, Los Angeles County, California. He was preceded in death by his parents Chester and Artie Fultz Deaton and his late wife Jacqueline Faye Duvall; his siblings: Viola Barnett, Sherman, Ralph, Gerald and Gladys Jean Deaton and one step-daughter: Delores Hamlin. Although he had no known children, he is survived by his former wife Mary Sue Adkins Dyehouse and her daughter Teresa Dunn Jones.

Orville traveled a lot and lived in several states which include, Kentucky, Ohio, Oregon and California. Orville was a long time resident of Long Beach, California and remained so at the time of his passing.

O.D. was a long time employee of Pyramid Hill in Hamilton, Butler County, Ohio.

He served his country in United States Army H2 Company 2nd Armed rifle BN, 54th Infirmity 112.00 Heavy Weapons Infirmityman.

Graveside funeral services will be held at 12:30 p.m. in the Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside, California on Wednesday, February 3, 2016.

On a personal note: Orville was a character and a comic to the end; always had a joke. He loved life and those he encountered along the way. He was a creature of habit always wore sweat pants in winter or shorts in the summer. He was a longtime friend of my late father Willie Adkins they shared an apartment in Lebanon at one time, his brother Denny Adkins, and best friend and business partner of his brother Russell Adkins. He was loved by many and fondly by each of their Grandchildren. He will be missed.

Anecdote: Orville and a friend decided to hop a freight train to California. They fell asleep in a boxcar; not realizing the car was full of glue. The next morning, his hair and jacket had been glued to the floor. The only way to free himself was for his friend too cut his hair and leave his jacket.

They needed a job for some ready cash, they happen upon a man burning his house down. They asked him for a job, helping him to complete the burn, to which he agreed. After they’d finished, cold, jacket-less and black from suet, they encounter a police officer who asked where they’re going. Orville tells him his plans and he says, “I’ll tell you what I’ll do, I’ll drive you a ride to the edge of town. Don’t ever come back.” For which they obliged.

Now, desperate and needing a way back home, Orville calls his dad Chester for the money to return on. Chester’s response, “How did you get out there?” Orville said, “I hopped a freight train.” To which Chester replied, ‘Well then, that’s how you’ll have get back home!” ~ Denny Adkins

On a personal note: Both myself & Anthony thought the world of Nick.  He grew up with our oldest son. They were very close at one time. An Memoriam never really tells the history of a person, their personality, whom they really were as a person, or how much they meant to someone. Nick was a really sweet boy.

I didn’t realize just how quickly time passed; it gets away from us.

I can’t even remember the last time that I had seen Nick in passing or talked to him, but I do remember the last time he came to visit me. He drove up to show us his new motorcycle. We talked for two or three hours, about what, I don’t remember. He wanted to show me how much weight he had lost & his new boots. Silly things really, but importantly enough to him, at the time, to want to share it with me.

I only wish I had followed up with him more.  I didn’t really see him much after that. He didn’t come to visit. I do remember a conversation, we had later, about his buying a house & having a small dispute with the little lady next door over a property line survey that he’d done. He laughed and said, “I don’t care. I love it, she’s trimming my bushes, so that I don’t have too!” [It stuck in my mind.]

It may seem like lot’s of uninteresting small talk to people, but ours lives consist of lot’s of little seemly unimportant events, small talk if you will, our day to days, but we should share them more often with our family and friends. Trust me, it won’t bore them. Don’t let years pass without calling and saying, “Hey! I bought a new________ or do you like my boots? Its the little things that mean the most.

Nick passed away, too young, in my opinion, but grew into a wonderful family man with two beautiful children and that is something to be very proud of.

I wish, only the best his family, his children, you’ll forever be in my prayers.  May God bless and comfort you always.

Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows. ~ Pope Paul VI

Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace. ~ Oscar Wilde
