In Loving Memory of Harrison Thomas Deal
February 29, 2000 ~ December 4, 2020 (age 20)
Harrison tragically passed away December 4, 2020 in a motor vehicle accident on I-16 in Chatham County. Harrison was working on Senator Kelly Loeffler’s campaign. From the moment Harrison entered the world, he was destined for great things. A leap year baby, born on February 29, 2000, in Bulloch County to Curt and Jenni Groover Deal, Harrison was special from the very beginning. Although his time on earth was far too short, he managed to obtain goals that others only dream about.
He was a 2018 graduate of Bulloch Academy where he was a four-year scholar athlete, a member of the National Honor Society and an honor graduate. Harrison went on to attend Georgia Southern University his freshman college year. Later, he transferred to the University of Georgia as a Sophomore, majoring in Finance and Political Science, and living his dream. And, because family was always Harrison’s priority, he joined Sigma Phi Epsilon where his fraternity brothers truly became his “brothers”. Harrison loved all sports, but he especially loved Georgia Bulldogs football.
With all his accomplishments, nothing meant more to Harrison than his family and friends. And those friends quickly became family. Governor Brian Kemp said in a statement “…we lost a member of our “Kemp Strong” family and words cannot express how much Harrison Deal’s life, love and support meant to us. ……Harrison was the Kemp son and brother we never had.”
