Floyd Deakle

April 30, 1961 — April 12, 2023

Floyd Wayne Deakle, Sr., age 61, passed away on Wednesday, April 12, 2023 at his home surrounded by family. Wayne was born on April 30, 1961 to Vester E Deakle, Sr. and Ruth Flaglore Deakle. He spent most of his life as a commercial fisherman in the Gulf waters that he dearly loved. He was devoted father and brother, and longtime member of Irvington Fellowship Baptist Church.

He is proceeded in death by his father Vester E Deakle, Sr.; his mother Ruth Flaglore Deakle; his brother Michael Alan Deakle, Sr.; and his grandson Gavin Deakle. He is survived by his children, Floyd Deakle, Jr, Kertis Deakle, Maci Deakle, and Nathan Royal; grandchildren John W. Rester, Saylor Deakle, Kylance Barber, Isabella Ford, and Jilliann Deakle; his siblings John Deakle, Gene (Barbara), Cathy (Carl) Caver, and Amy (Chris) Smith. As well as many other family and friends.

Wayne was fun loving and full of life. He would keep you laughing. He was kindhearted and would give you the shirt off his back. He never turned anyone in need away regardless of the need. There was no mountain too tall, no shoes too uncomfortable, and he didn't always know if the view would be worth it, but Wayne never strayed from the path that God had for his life. It was a challenge that he always faced head on. Wayne will be remembered as a willing vessel who was understanding, patient, and compassionate, even on the hardest days. His absences here on earth may leave a void in many hearts, but the love he invested in others will live on forever. After all, a life that touches others goes on forever.
