Don C. Mowell passed away on Monday, September 30, 2013, at the age of 85 after a long illness. Born in Ocala, FL, Don lived most of his life in Ohio and retired to California. He made his livelihood as a union carpenter and was very successful.

Don was a wonderful loving father, grandpa, and great grandpa. He was a friend to many in Friendly Valley where he was known for his green thumb. He was truly a member of "The Greatest Generation" and believed in hard work and perseverance and taught his daughters that valuable lesson.
