A Life Well Lived

Ben Deaton

September 18, 1943 - November 22, 2023

Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

Ben Deaton, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away from a sudden heart attack on November 22, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the age of 80. He was born on September 18, 1943, to his loving parents, Charles and Anne Deaton, in Las Vegas, where he would spend his entire life.

Ben shared his life with his devoted spouse, Gail Deaton, whom he married in 1947. Together, they created a beautiful family that brought endless joy to their lives. Ben was a dedicated father to his two sons, Jeff and Michael. He shared a strong bond with each of them and supported them in their endeavors throughout their lives.

After graduating from Boulder City High School in 1961, Ben embarked on a successful career in the construction industry. His hard work, passion, and meticulous attention to detail made him a respected figure in the field. He cherished the opportunity to build strong, vibrant structures that would endure for generations to come, leaving a lasting impact on the community he so dearly loved.

Ben's nurturing spirit extended beyond his family and profession. He was an active member of his community, always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Friends and neighbors fondly remember his warm smile, compassionate nature, and his ability to find joy in life's simplest pleasures.

When he wasn't busy working or offering a helping hand, Ben found solace and peace in the great outdoors. He had a deep appreciation for nature's beauty and would often explore the breathtaking landscapes that surrounded Las Vegas. Whether hiking through the picturesque Red Rock Canyon or fishing in peaceful lakes, these moments brought him immense happiness and serenity.

Family was the cornerstone of Ben's life. As a grandfather to four adoring grandchildren, he embraced the role of mentor, storyteller, and friend. His presence in their lives was a source of unwavering love, laughter, and wisdom. Ben's grandchildren will forever hold memories of his playful spirit and the lasting life lessons he imparted on them.

Ben Deaton will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His warm heart, gentle nature, and dedication to his family and community serve as an inspiration to us all. As we mourn his loss, let us cherish the memories we shared and strive to honor his legacy by living each day with kindness and compassion.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.

You can to the family or in memory of Ben Deaton.
