DCCOA Tribute to George Partin

The DCCOA Board of Directors, with heavy hearts, share with you that our neighbor and longtime Deercreek resident George C. Partin passed away on February 24, 2018 at the age of 73.

As many of you know, George volunteered his valuable time and services for many years to our community and to the HOA. He was a former board member, DCCOA President, and most recently he served on the Finance Committee. George could always be counted on to provide valuable and level headed suggestions to the Board with the sole purpose of making our neighborhood a better place in which to live. He was present at our February Board of Directors meeting offering much appreciated advice and opinions on critical matters. His contributions were significant and his wisdom and the respect he showed others will be greatly missed.
