DeCoursey left Wayland in 1944 after being a 3rd-team All-State selection and enlisted in the United States Navy during World War II.
Following his service, DeCoursey returned to Wayland and led the Wasps to the 1947 Sweet 16 and was named a 1st-team All-State selection.
Former Kentucky Mr. Basketball J.R. VanHoose even commented on the news, saying, "Sure sad to hear this terrible news. I met Mr. DeCoursey a few years ago in Wayland and he was just the nicest man with the greatest stories. He will truly be missed."
