Leo Benjamin Deever

June 13, 2013 ‒ June 13, 2013

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Leo Benjamin Deever, infant son of John Deever and Lisa Swaim, passed away on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at Knox Community Hospital in Mount Vernon.

Besides his parents he is survived by his siblings, Sasha Deever and Jacob Deever. He was much anticipated by his grandparents, aunts and uncles, first and second cousins, and a host of other family and friends.

Leo liked music, especially his sister’s piano playing, and he kicked enthusiastically during the high school’s production of Willy Wonka, in which his sister was an Oompa Loompa. He cheered with his feet during his brother’s soccer games. And he seemed to enjoy his dad’s cooking. He never saw the sun on his face, but he knew where it was.

The family will observe a private memorial service. The Dowds-Snyder Funeral Home of Mount Vernon is assisting the family with arrangements.

Memorial contributions in Leo’s name may be made to Partners in Health (pih.org) or the charity of one’s choice.
