Gene had a long affiliation with the Sanctuary Cove. From the time he moved to the Sunflower community he walked the trails there on an almost daily basis. He also participated in numerous building and trail maintenance activities from 1999 through at least 2009. For some years he also served on the Board of Directors for the Cove. As the health of his wife, Heide Deess, deteriorated he slowly reduced his service to the Cove, but continued his daily visits. When Heide passed away in 2013 her memorial service was held in the Cove amphitheater with the chair of the board in attendance.
After a massive stroke in 2016 Gene was confined to a wheelchair but, despite being in hospice care, still made occasional trips to the Sanctuary Cove he loved.
Over the more than 20 years Gene lived in Tucson, the Cove was dear to his heart and he would like to ask people to make contributions to the Cove in lieu of sending flowers.
For personal use, Sanctuary Cove is open to the public 365 days a year, rain or shine from Sunrise to Sunset. Feel free to explore the property on our walking trails, meditate and relax in our non-denominational Chapel, have lunch in our amphitheater or hike to the top of Safford Peak! Sanctuary cove is a popular location from which to access the more rugged and less traveled areas of Saguaro National Park.
For professional use, Sanctuary cove offers reasonable pricing for photographers, memorial services, weddings, and overnight stays at our renovated adobe brick cottage.
Increasing costs and renovations to the infrastructure of the property has put the future of Sanctuary Cove in jeopardy. With your help, we can ensure the stewardship of the land for years to come. Please consider becoming a member of All Creeds Brotherhood, making a donation, or volunteering your time today.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
