Deron E. Overton

In celebration of life, Deron Eugene Overton was called home on Wednesday, January 3, 2024, to be with the Lord and loved ones. Deron was affectionately known as “Ron Ron’ and “D1.” He was a loving son, grandson, father, brother, uncle, and friend. Deron’s early education was at Columbus City Schools and Worthington Schools. He also attended Columbus Culinary school and Ohio Media Broadcasting school. Deron had a personal relationship with GOD, and he was praying man!

Deron was a man with a very big heart. He did not meet a stranger; everyone he met he considered a friend. Ron found his love for cooking at an early age and utilized those skills in many places and kitchens. Ron was a gifted, naturally talented artist from birth with much potential. Let him tell it – he is a jack of all trades. Ron had a way of telling you a story and making you believe what he was saying. He knew how to make you laugh; he missed his calling as a comedian.

Ron had a passion for his kids; he lived for them and loved music. Ron would always say his biggest accomplishment was having Dereon and Deron Jr. One of his proudest moments was going to the Daddy/Daughter dance with Dereon and conditioning Deron Jr. for football.

In the music industry, he was known as “D1” where he was a freelance “Ghostwriter”, Lyricist, Hypeman, and rapper. D1 was proud to be a part of the production of Circle of Bosses and Streetz Illustrated, which was created with his late cousin, Dion Lamarr. He could talk about music and his favorite football team, The Buffalo Bills, for hours.

He is preceded in death by his uncle, Daryl “DeDe” Overton; grandmother, Barbara Jean White; cousin, Dion Lamarr; and great grandfather, John Boone.
Ron-Ron leaves to cherish his memories, his loving and devoted mother, Elizabeth Overton; sisters, Cierra Overton and Javonna Hartley; grandparents, Richard and Sarah Overton; his children, Dereon Sarah Ann Overton and Deron Eugene Overton, Jr.; his father, Ron Thrweatt; brother, Carron Thrweatt; sister, Ronnetta Abercrombie; as well as, the C.O.B Family, the Homestead Family; close friends, Taquala Jones, Jason Hartley, Aaron Taylor, Yung Frost, Blacque Ceaser and a host of nieces, nephews, uncles and cousins.

We will miss you. We know God has a better plan for you.

Visitation 1:00pm and Funeral 2:00pm Saturday, January 13, 2023 at MARLAN J. GARY FUNERAL HOME, THE CHAPEL OF PEACE NORTH, 2500 Cleveland Ave.
