nullWe are saddened to share the news of the passing of our brother in Christ, Harold Deeg. 

Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving what God has done through His servant Harold.

Harold Paul Deeg, Sr., was given life by his creator and was born on March 29, 1932, the child of Paul and Laura (Schulz) Deeg. On April 29, 1932, he received the gift of Holy Baptism and became a child of God. On May 13, 1945, he publically confessed his faith and was confirmed. He received the precious gift of the Lord’s life-giving body and blood. Through the course of his life he received the gift of a beloved companion in his wife, Beverly, and, after her passing, his wife Marcella. God blessed Harold’s life with the gift of children: William Deeg of Sebewaing, Susan Ahearn of Bad Axe, Lee (Marci) Deeg of Watkins, IA, Ann (Andrew) Manial of Spring Hill, TN, Melynda Deeg of Bay City and Harold, Jr. (LeeAnn) Deeg of Bad Axe; grandchildren: Sandra, Beverly, Joshua, Shelly, Robin, Brett, Kyle, Erica, Ryan, Jared, Ryan, Nick, Chad, Andreah, Nathan, Ashlee, Matthew and De’Antre; several great grandchildren; siblings: Jerry Deeg of Sebewaing, Robert Deeg of Sebewaing, Selma Schulz of Deckerville, and Shirley Leiterman of Sebewaing; and many nieces and nephews. In addition, God also blessed Denny’s life with many special people as he served God in his vocations at home, here at St. Paul, at Michigan Sugar, on the farm, at the American Legion Post, at the Sebewaing Sportsman’s VFW Hall, and in the community. Finally, on December 16, 2017 God blessed Harold with a holy death and took him home to rest in the arms of Jesus to await the resurrection of the dead.

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for Harold, our brother in Christ.

Harold's funeral will be here at St. Paul on Wednesday, December 20, at noon. For more information, see his obituary at http://www.jmfuneralhome.com/obituary/harold-deeg-sr.
