Obituary

EDINBURG- James Monroe (Jimmy) Deaton, 68, passed away Monday, August 5, 2019.

Born in Edinburg, he was raised in Pharr and attended Holy Spirit Catholic Church in McAllen. Jimmy was a 1970 graduate of PSJA High School. After graduation, he went to work for Mobil Oil Corporation in Falfurrias, TX and retired from DCP Midstream in 2016, after working 43 years under the same entity. While in Falfurrias, TX, he coached little league baseball and soccer teams throughout the children’s childhood. He continued his passion for coaching little league by coaching his grandson’s team for three years in Edinburg. Mr. Deaton enjoyed deer hunting with his son and “buddies,” and spending time with his cherished grandsons. Jimmy was known for his contagious laugh amongst his friends and family.
