David Deakins, Sr. is the President of Deakins-Carroll Insurance Agency. David joined the agency in 1983 working and learning the family business from his parents, Jud & Mickey. His ability to lead and maintain strong values are traits that serve the agency well.
David graduated in 1979 from Martin County High School and went on to the University of Miami on a full football scholarship where he earned a bachelor's degree in Administration and Coaching. After graduation, David had plans to play professional football and go on to coaching afterwards, however, the opportunity presented itself for him to come home and join the family business. In hindsight, he knows he made the right choice. During his college years, he married his high school sweetheart, Donna, and in 1983, started his family. David is the proud father of four, David Jr, Deanna, Delaney and Dalton, and two beautiful grandchildren, Bryn and Cole.
David takes his job seriously and believes it is very important to create an environment where employees feel comfortable and clients feel valued. His door is always open to talk, no appointment necessary. He fosters a family-oriented culture at the workplace.
Leisure time means spending quality time with his family and entertaining close friends. David spent decades coaching each of his children in different youth sports. His impact on the youth of Martin County through coaching is one of the things he is most proud. He is hoping there is a spot on the coaching staff for the old guy when the grandchildren start to play. When he is not in the office or on the field, he’s on his boat.
His 36 years of expertise and dedication to helping educate clients with their insurance needs are what makes him good at what he does, and he is excited to serve you!
