Deane served in the South Pacific, and was involved in many major conflicts, including Guadalcanal. Following the war, he married the love of his life, Kathleen “Kay” Willette, from Old Town, and together shared 72 years of marriage. Deane worked as a meat manager for a number of Bangor area Doug’s Shop n’ Save grocery stores until his retirement in 1985. He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Orono. Deane and his wife were avid sports fans, supporting the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, New England Patriots, and especially local high school sports teams. He will be remembered for his uplifting, fun spirited personality, and a sense of humor that brought a smile to many. Deane was a loving and caring Husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and uncle who will be missed dearly by his family and all who knew him.
In addition to his parents and his wife, he is predeceased by two brothers, Keith and Rand Anderson.
