Reuben Deerhake was my cousin and meant so much to me, though we seldom "got together". He introduced my father and me to the entire Ohio Deerhake clan, and large numbers of our joint ancestors, and our genealogy. In early 1990's he taught me to do email with the long-ago, Tempe based, aztecfreenet. This once saved my Dad's life and gave him 4 more years... he died at 92. I am so sad that Reuben did not outlive my dad in age... he was bigger than life, and so deserved to live! He also introduced me to relatives over in Germany, so that I once had a wonderful visit there for a week with them. He enriched my life so much, and I never envisioned life without him... thought he would be here forever! I'm sure he was a good citizen of Sun City West, where we visited him just over a month ago, apparently right before his last hospitalization. We will miss you SO MUCH REUBEN!

I am one of two daughters of Reuben Deerhake. He was a pedifile and a preditor. My sister and I disowned him and he should have spent the rest of his life in jail. I know of at least 12 girls he sexually abused, including my stepdaughter and my niece, my sister and myself. He fooled everyone outside his private circle. Personally I thank God he is dead.

Reuben Deerhake was my father. An angry man, he did not appreciate his wife or the gift of 2 daughters. Over time as his anger grew, he became a bully, wielding intimidation and meanness as power. He emotionally, physically, and sexually abused us. He morphed into a pedophile and a premeditated child predator. To date there are 12 known victims. Reuben Deerhake destroyed our family and broke my heart. He lived in fear until the day he died that we, his daughters would blow the lid off his cover. But we didn’t. We couldn’t bear to relive all the pain. Reuben Deerhake’s sad pitiful life ended March 7th, 2013. And in his obituary he claimed no daughters. He is also survived by 3 brothers who are unable to face his despicable behavior.
