WENATCHEE, WA, December 27, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Thaddeus Robert Henry Deane has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
With more than 20 years of excellence to his credit in business management, Mr. Deane has earned distinction as the leader of his own business. In this capacity, he is the owner of the game store, Sanctuary, in Wenatchee, Washington.
Since May 10, 1999, he has focused his efforts on overseeing the daily operation of the business while sponsoring and facilitating tournaments for Magic: The Gathering games. Outside of his primary career efforts, he supports the local fire department and police officer's efforts with yearly donations.
Before starting his private career, Mr. Deane served honorably in the special forces of the United States Navy SEALs from 1987 until his enlistment ended in 1993. He was stationed at SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team One (SDVT-1), where he was an excellent pilot for the SDV.
He received an Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Batter (ASVAB) score of 93 which enabled him to complete a program at the sonar technician school (A school) and gain the rating of Sonar Technician. However, years later, he eventually had to change his rating from Sonar Tech to Storekeeper, in order to secure his ability to make rank to E4, which was his final rank before the end of his enlistment. Prior to this, due to not working as a Sonar Tech, he would pass his tests but not be advanced (PNA), due to competing scores from the fleet. (God has His ways...isn't it interesting that Mr. Deane became a store owner later!)
With having the foresight to enroll in the Montgomery GI Bill during Navy boot camp, at the end of his service, Mr. Deane was able to use the GI Bill to enroll in college courses to further his education.
Prior to his current role with Sanctuary, after being discharged from the navy in '93, Mr. Deane became part of the engine crew for the Leavenworth forest service fire crew. After a year, he went on to join the Chelan Rappellers and stayed with them for two more years as he rappelled from helicopters into the back country, to help control and suppress forest fires.
As a seasonal job, this allowed Mr. Deane to attend college during the winter months.
He subsequently worked seasonally with Pirelli Jacobson (96' to 99'), and was also a roofer during this time and even served as a bouncer at the Clearwater Bar for a few years, back in 2001-2003.
During his professional journey with Sanctuary, Mr. Deane earned an Associate of Arts in network administration from the Wenatchee Valley College in 2007.
Within the coming years, Mr. Deane intends to continue running his store and since he's a naturally amicable person, he strives to make a positive difference in all he does.
Although he knows it's cliché to say, still...he is known to say, "I honestly try to make the world a better place around me, as I strive daily to make my Father in Heaven proud of me."
HOO-YAH & God Bless ALL who Stand for Good...!
