Deano was born October 30, 1992 in Garland, a son of Robbie and Kathy Goynes Wilson. He was a senior at North Lamar High School, where he excelled in athletics, especially baseball. He was a confident man of faith and tenacity, proving it time and again when beating some of life's hardest obstacles. He lived a life of determination following a serious accident in 2007, enduring numerous surgeries and life-threatening injuries. When told that he would never again be able to participate in athletics, his optimism and the encouragement of his father pushed him to greater heights than ever before. He was an avid outdoorsman, and loved to go catfishing. He had a "goofy" sense of humor, but was wise beyond his years. His kindness and loving spirit was sensed by all who knew him. He loved his teammates and loved the girls, but loved his family most.

Deano was preceded in death by two cousins, Colt Hoyt and Jeremy Jumper.
