Deegan was preceded in death by his late grandfather, Nick Ceniga, of Sisters and late great-grandfather, Jim Barret.

Deegan is survived by his father and mother, Gabriel Domion Ceniga and Lindsay Beth (Turcott) Ceniga, both Sisters High School alumni. His siblings include Ashlynn Marie Ceniga and Tyler Domion Ceniga, Tyler’s fiancée Brittany Gates, along with beloved nephew Axton Domion Ceniga; grandmothers Jody Turcott and Janet Ceniga; aunts and uncles, Erick and Angel Jensen of Montana, Misty (Ceniga) and Kelly Christiansen of Sisters, Josh and Patience (Ferguson) Ceniga, Tyson and Crystal (Baker) Ceniga; cousins Cody, Chase, Brooklyn, Presley, Mia, and Lincoln also survive him; plus many other loved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and a great-grandmother.

Deegan was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He was a kind and a compassionate person who loved animals, was quirky, funny, and loved spending time with his brother, nephew, and best friends Gunner Scheer and Chase Ceniga. Some of Deegan’s passions were working out at the gym and power lifting with his best friend, Gunner. He grew up riding dirt bikes and continued to ride with his friends and family. He spent about four years of his youth wrestling. He excelled at anything he tried. Deegan thoroughly enjoyed camping, swimming, and family vacations.

Because of Deegan’s generous and loving spirit, he gave the gift of life to many people through his organ donations.

A memorial service will be held in the future.
