I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Deke well, but got to know him better in our 'Chat' group here at the Chateau. He seemed to me to be a person of high integrity, having a positive outlook on life, a good sense of humor and I am missing seeing him.
Arlene R Munden, April 13, 2021 My parents and the Doreys were friends during their younger years when GE was in operation. Mr. Dorey would "tickle" me by being able to whistle out of the side of his mouth. We all enjoyed the positive upbeat attitude that always was a part of his nature. All of you are in our prayers, Rick Goodsell Richard Goodsell Sr., April 10, 2021 Deke, We are sorry to read that you have left us! We remember many happy events where we shared good times during the 20 some years since we met you in McKinney. The Friday night get togethers over drinks and appetizers were always something to look forward to. While I couldn't compete with you on the golf course, I still claim the bragging rights to having the first "Romeio" hole in one about a year before you hit yours. I do remember you inviting me to join you join you to play at the Ranch one very hot day and by the time we hit the 16th hole, all I wanted to do was get the hell out of there and when I got home, the thermometer read "110". Rest in Peace old buddy! Tony Quint Tony Quint, April 8, 2021 I knew Deke from our Wednesday golf outings, (ROMEOS). He was such a pleasure to be around. He always had some witty comment about the subject at hand. He will be missed. Our prayers are with you and your family. Good Bless. Robert Lackey, April 7, 2021 A true gentleman in every sense of the word. I was honored to have known him. Heaven has another great golfer. Stan Garrett, April 7, 2021 Sorry for your loss of your live one. May the blessings of God comfort you. From a fellow "chat group" member Sheri, April 6, 2021 Deke a wonderful man. So sad! He will be missed in the Community
