Donald Ray McLemore passed away on October 26, 2019 at his home in Mill A, Washington surrounded by family. Don was born on October 18, 1936 and was 83 years of age at the time of his passing.

Don was born at Duncan, Oklahoma to Haskell and Edith Elizabeth (Smith) McLemore. He celebrated 63 years of marriage to Bessie Ann Hamilton on June 16th. Don was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.

He was a hardworking heavy equipment operator, a welder at the Bonneville Dam, a Skamania County Reserve Sheriff’s Deputy and EMT and a millwright for WKO, Inc. He also worked odd jobs long after his “official” retirement. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, trips to the beach, his pets but most of all time with his family. He will be remembered for his smile and happiness, his famous funny quick-wit sayings, his positive attitude and big heart. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.

Don is survived by his wife, Bessie; son, Darin (and wife, Tina) McLemore; daughter, Terri and her wife Yamiska; his beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Dottie and sister, Barbara.

A Celebration of his life is planned for 2:00 p.m., Sunday, November 10th, 2019 at Rock Creek Hegewald Center (710 SW Rock Creek Drive, Stevenson, WA 98648).

The McLemore family wishes to extend their sincere thanks and appreciation to Providence Hospice of the Gorge.
