Hilton Head's Cartha 'Deke' DeLoach Dies

Former Hilton Head Island Community Leader Cartha ‘Deke' DeLoach, 92, died this week.  Funeral services are Saturday. Former Deputy Director of the FBI, then Vice President of Pepsico, Beaufort County Sheriff PJ Tanner said DeLoach was a ‘CEO' through and through but always a classic gentleman.   When he moved to Hilton Head, he instantly connected with the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office, becoming a huge supporter and connector.

 

"He helped. He brought training down here. He still had a lot of contacts at FBI headquarters. If you needed something and hit a stumbling block, all you had to do is call him and it would cut all of the red tape," Captain Bob Bromage said.

 

"He was dedicated to the end. We really lost a good friend to law enforcement and a good friend to the community of Hilton Head," Sheriff PJ Tanner said.
