Burl Deaver

May 18, 1932 — April 15, 2022

Burl Gene Deaver, 89, of Lubbock, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, April 15, 2022. Burl was born on May 18, 1932, in Morton, Cochran County, Texas, to the late Burl Richard Deaver and Evelyn (Sadler) Deaver.

He grew up in the Morton area and graduated from Morton High School in 1949. After graduation from high school, Burl attended Lubbock Christian College (LCC).

Burl met the love of his life, Jamettie Jeter, and they were married on March 22, 1952, in the Chapel of Broadway Church of Christ, in Lubbock. Jamettie preceded him in death on July 7, 2020.

Burl was the owner and operator of Deaver and Vickery Company and worked as an electrical contractor. He retired from Deaver and Vickery Company in 1985. He loved to hunt and fish, woodworking, but most of all he adored his grandchildren, as he was very family oriented. Burl has been a member of Sunset Church of Christ for the past 64 years.

Those left to cherish his memory include one daughter, Debra Townley and her husband Bill of Lubbock; two sons, Ricky Deaver and his wife Melody of Pearland, and Nick Deaver and his wife Kathleen of Austin; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
