John Oliver Deichmann

March 28, 1944 ~ October 13, 2021 (age 77)


John Oliver Deichmann, 77, of Dublin, Arkansas, passed away on Wednesday, October 13, 2021.  John was born on March 28, 1944 in New Orleans, Louisiana to his parents, Oliver B. Deichmann and Genevieve (Gentilich) Deichmann.  This is where John met his wife of 57 years, Elizabeth Glee Deichmann and where they raised their three sons.  For many years, John worked as a hotel manager for Candlelight Inn and Warwick Hotel and owned and operated J&J Automotive in New Orleans where John resided until moving to Dublin, Arkansas. 

 John quickly made Dublin his new home.  John was an active member of Prairie View United Methodist Church.  John proudly served as a first responder and volunteer fireman for Scranton and also spent several years working for Scranton School District, where he enjoyed his position as a bus driver.  John never met a stranger, loved to make people laugh, and never missed an opportunity to tell a joke to anyone willing to listen. 

John is preceded in death by his parents.  John is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Glee Deichmann; his three sons and their wives: Michael and Susan Deichmann, Thomas and Brittany Deichmann, and Kyle and Moon Deichmann; and his seven grandchildren: James, Brooke, Britton, Nina, Bradley, Paxton, and Oliver Deichmann. 

A memorial service for John will be held on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 11:00 a.m., at Prairie View United Methodist Church, located at 4532 E State Hwy 288, Scranton, Arkansas.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.
