Deane Girard Marfone
September 6, 1955- March 3, 2021

Deane passed away after a long battle with Atypical Parkinson’s at the age of 65.

Deane was born in Troy, New York to Patrick and Celia Marfone. They moved to King of Prussia, Pennsylvania when he was one. He went to Upper Merion High School and then on to Lehigh University. He moved to Southern California in the early 80’s but was always just a guy from Philly.

Singing the Lehigh Fight song at the top of his lungs, yelling “Let’s go Flyers” even when they weren’t the team that was playing, and a forever Eagles fan. He was beyond thrilled to see the Superbowl Win and kept saying ” I can’t believe they finally did it”.

Deane was in sales his whole career. He made many friends along the way and always kept in contact with them, asking about their families because Deane was first and foremost a family guy.

He was an amazing husband and father. Many of the friends he made came from coaching his kids on the soccer field, baseball diamond and softball field. If he wasn’t the coach, you always could hear Deane cheering on his kids from the sidelines. He was their number one fan.

He is survived by his wife of thirty years, Chris, his four children – Olivia (29), Isabella (28), Celia (27), and Vincent (25), his brother Patrick Jr. (wife, Linda), and his many nieces, nephews, and friends from coast to coast.

  1. Deane was a loving husband and dad and am reminded of our conversations of providing the latest updates of his children’s accomplishments. Always so proud! I am grateful for working with Deane during the years and will always remember his loyalty to family and his iconic laugh. Thank you Deane for being a phenomenal mentor, leader, and friend! I will never forget the nickname you provided me and appreciate the memories of you bellowing out – “Turbo”. RIP my friend and God Bless!

  2. Deane was a wonderful human. He was a leader who truly cared about those he worked with. He was funny, smart, and a little nuts! He was always talking about how proud he was of his kids and wife. I learned allot from Deane and feel so lucky have had him as a friend and mentor. Did I mention he was a little nuts, but he was truly loved and appreciated by all who knew him.

  4. I met Deane in the mid 80’s at a technology event and we hit it off immediately. Both being from the Philly area created a special bond that lasted for over 40 years. Deane was a work colleague, mentor to me in business but most of all one of my dearest friends. We both raised our families together and I learned so much from Deane about how to be a loving father, because in the end that was the most important thing to him. One of favorite memories of Deane was watching him passionately coach his kids soccer teams. We lived at the top of a hill overlooking the field. I never needed to know what time the games started, I just had to step outside and hear Deane shouting to his players. I’ll miss our work and family times together, the cheese steaks lunches but most of all hearing him scream DREW, when I walked into the room. Deane, you were larger than life, and I miss you dearly.

    I was so blessed to know Deane from multiple perspectives, as a boss in the mid-80s, a mentor, a friend who introduced me to my wife Natalie and became my Best Man in 1990, an employee in the early 2000s, and a mentee. Ultimately, Deane was one of the closest friends I ever had. I think about him constantly. His classic phone calls where he would introduce himself as “flounder,” his encyclopedic knowledge of all things “Godfather,” mostly the concern and love he had for his kids and family. Never a harsh word, Deane was overflowing with wisdom, optimism, and a zest for life. I will miss you, my friend. Rest in Peace.
