It is with deep sadness that we announce our beloved Son, Grandson, Brother, Family Member and Friend, Xavier Patrick Maurer, 26, passed away suddenly on Wednesday September 18th 2019, after a long battle with mental illness.

Patrick was born March 17th 1993, in Hampton, VA. and grew up in Deltona, Florida. Patrick was a U.S. Army Veteran and had graduated from Pine Ridge High School in Deltona, Florida.

Patrick had a great sense of humor and loved to make people laugh. He was also an avid gamer. He was a very hard worker, always striving to be the best at what he did. It is tragic that he did not see the potential we all saw in him. We all loved him deeply and dearly.

Valori Jenkins Turner


Valeria Boese - Picture

On June 24th, 2019, early in the evening, Valori Jenkins Turner lost her battle to Pancreatic cancer just 10 months after her diagnosis.  She fought harder in those 10 months than most people fight in their entire lives.  She fought bravely and with grace.  She fought with an army of loved ones and she fought alone. She fought up until her very last breath.  Her strength was astonishing.  At 49 years old, this mother, daughter, sister and friend left this world leaving her kindness, love, light, compassion and grace behind to give us strength. She didn’t stop fighting and she didn’t lose.  She didn’t leave us behind, she just left behind the pain and suffering this brutal disease brought her.  Every moment and every memory will be cherished and this sweet vibrant woman will be dearly missed.

Survivors include her two children, Zack Turner and Jaci Turner, her Mother Fran Huffer and Step Father, Bob Huffer, her Father, Bill Jenkins, her brother Todd Jenkins and Sister-In-Law Lori Jenkins, many Aunts and Uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins and an unnumerical number of Friends and Sisters!

Thank you to each every one of you who gave your love, support, time, prayers and friendship to Valori and her family during this difficult time.  I cannot adequately express the gratitude and appreciation you all deserve.

Please join us as we celebrate the life of Valori.  Sunday the 21st of July, 2019 from 11:00-1:00.  If you are planning on helping to set up, please be at the Woman’s Club by 10:00AM, clean up help will also be appreciated, we have to vacate the building by 1:30pm for the next party.

Charles Edward Deese (Charlie)

Charles Edward Deese (Charlie) passed away peacefully on January 27th, 2019. He was born to Emma Lou Deese and Charles Edward Deese in Alabama on October 8, 1943. He spent most of his life in Florida, cared for by his brother and family. He is preceded in death by both parents, a sister Patricia Ann Deese (Patty), and a brother William Wayne Deese (Bill). He is survived by a brother James Richard Deese (Rick), and 9 nieces and nephews, Mike Adams, Todd Adams, Alan Deese, Jason Deese, Mandy Riggers, Steven Deese, Lacey Deese, Chelcey Deese, and Kode Deese.
Charlie was a character if you ever knew one, with a laugh that was contagious. He had an uncanny ability to remember just about anything. From a football game (Roll Tide Forever!) or baseball game score to the weather, regardless of what, when and where, he prided himself on being able to tell anyone who would listen. Pleasantly ornery, with a childlike kindheartedness, he was as special as he was wonderfully unique. He will be deeply missed while he reunites with his family in Heaven, until we all meet again. We pray they have pencils and notebooks in Heaven. Go rest high, Charlie. You now have the best seats for The Tide!
