Look up Deedy in Websters Dictionary and you will see the following definition - \Deed"y\, a. Industrious; active. [R.] --Cowper. But to me Deedy is simply my last name and not a very common one at that. My Father always said "find yourself in a strange city? Open a phone book, find a Deedy and give them a call - chances are they are a relative." So, for all the Deedy's out there hello and welcome.

    This was my great uncle, I went to the funeral and got to meet even more Deedys. Growing up in Atlanta, I didn't spend much time with the rest of the New England Deedy clan.

    John Deedy was an old and loyal friend. We worked together in Pitgtsburgh for the same guy, i.e., Cardinal Wright. We spoke a lot on the telephone these past few years. I shall miss him terribly.
