Dad always loved the outdoors and cherished the time he was able to hunt and fish. He loved and valued his family; I never once doubted this. His bond with his brothers and sisters was ingrained in his nature, just as it is with all his brothers and sister. No greater legacy could be passed down through the Deaters than this bond that touches us all. — Tonja (Deater) Harris
