He was preceded in death by his grandson, Tyler Kent Deskins, brothers, Gene Douglas Deskins and Bryan Goble Deskins and his father, Clarence Goble Deskins.

Due to the current government restrictions, there will be a private visitation and  graveside service for the family, with burial at Smith Cemetery, at his home in Cynthiana.
