Fr Deane


Father Deane retired as Principal of St Louis School in 1986.  He has Parkinson's Disease. 

Fr Deane arrived in Ireland in 1997 and had been staying in nursing homes.  Everything was new to him when he first returned to Ireland..  Despite the high quality nursing home provided to him by the Salesian Society, without friends and familiar environment, the loneliness amplified the adverse effect of his Parkinson's Disease. Whenever his friends and Old Boys visited him, Father's mood and conditions improved dramatically.

His life in Ireland could be summarised through his friends' letters and later reports in Father Deane Foundation Fund from Old Boys and friends who visited him. In his last years, although his physical health had continued to deteriorate, with the generous support by the Salesian Society, the continual companionship of the carer and the frequent visits of the Trust directors and other Old Boys, Father settled down and enjoyed his days as much as his conditions allowed.On 9 May 2007 Father passed away peacefully at the nursing home.
