Mr. Deardorff was born May 11, 1917, in Clackamas to Earl and Gertrude Deardorff. He married Darlene Kufner on Nov. 28, 1969, in Vancouver, Wash.

He enjoyed visiting with friends, hunting, fishing, watching deer in his yard and chasing squirrels from his bird feeders. He lived in Sisters for the past nine years and spent the winter months in Yuma, Ariz.

Note: Donald married Louisa May Alcott in Vancouver, WA in 1937. I believe they at some point divorced and both remarried later. Louisa was the mother of the Donald that was born and died in 1940.
