By DLA Information Operations

After 35 years of federal service, Defense Logistics Agency Document Services employee Steffon Deyo hung up his tie and retired in May.

Deyo spent his 35 years between Army, Navy and DLA civilian service. He started his career at Fort A.P. Hill in 1981 but took his first job in printing as a clerk in 1989. Deyo joined DLA in 1996 when the Department of Defense printing mission transitioned from the Navy to DLA. He continued as an electronic duplicating systems technician for several years and took a supervisor role from 2005-2008. Deyo then became a document automation specialist and worked at Fort Belvoir, Va. until his retirement.

Throughout Deyo’s time at Document Services, he performed various jobs which required technical skill, attention to detail, excellent customer service skills and financial acumen to ensure the best value was provided to customers

“Steffon always helped customers get what they need and treated everyone with dignity and respect,” said Document Services Director Richard TeBeau. “He was a valuable resource to the Document Services team in order to accomplish the mission; and he strived to ensure issues were handled at the lowest level possible”

“He was a good guy who cared about the organization” said Steven Sherman, former Document Services director who spent many years working with Deyo. “He understood the importance of front-line workers to the organization - we exist for the convenience of the customer. He got that!”

Deyo received many awards over the years and kudos from customers as well as coworkers.

We congratulate Steffon on his retirement and wish him well in his future endeavors.
