Deron was the best kind of neighbor there is. He was always willing to lend a hand when we had a household project. He so selflessly took care of the elderly people on our street by maintaining their yards, driveways, garbage, and anything else he could do to help. He will be greatly missed in the neighborhood. Our deepest sympathies to the Tanner family.
