Tim Deaton

April 14, 1958 - December 7, 2021

Timothy Guerrant Deaton, 63, of Beaumont, died suddenly Tuesday, December 7, 2021. He was born on April 14, 1958, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to Margaret Faye Guerrant and Ray Ernest Deaton.

Tim grew up in Beaumont, Texas. He was a proud graduate of Forest Park, class of ‘76. It was during that time he met his high school sweetheart, Andrea. After eight years of dating, Tim and Andrea married in 1982. They welcomed their first child, Jennifer, in 1984, and second, Jamie, in 1993. As all their family and friends will attest, through thick and thin, Tim and Andrea were together till the end.

Tim never met a stranger. His smile was always there to greet you, and he always had a kind word to say. Cooking was his love language. Whether it was Sunday barbecues by the pool, red beans and rice for Mardi Gras, or a feast at the Bud Barn, serving others brought him the most joy. His family will always remember his pool cannonballs, war memorabilia collection, couponing, and love for his wife, kids, family, and friends.

Survivors include his wife of thirty-nine years, Andrea Serio Deaton; daughters, Jennifer Deaton Gregory and her husband, Sam; and Jamie Deaton Dillon and her husband, Jacob; grandchildren, S. J. Gregory, Joanna Gregory, and Wyatt Dillon; brother, Mike Deaton; sister, Patricia Russell and her husband, Michael; Brother-in-law, Jay Serio and his wife, Patti; sister-in-law, Ann Serio; and nieces and nephews, Ben Deaton, Rayna Deaton, Patrick Russell, Mathew Russell, and Hope Serio.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

    Andrea, so sorry for your loss
    Tim was my neighbor growing up
    He was a good friend.
    He had great taste in music and helped me work on cars
    I was just thinking of him and looked him up wondering what happened to him. So glad you had so many years together. Two pasty red heads living in the south!
