Dear Dawn and family, we have never met, but I worked with Deane for many years as engineering liaison between Lancaster Leaf and Universal Leaf in Richmond. I and my colleague, Denny Hall, held Deane in high esteem as a talented engineer and a gentleman in the true sense. We send our condolences and will remember him with great fondness.
RIP Deane.
