Donald “Don” Blackburn was born in Ripon, Yorkshire England on September 13th, 1959.
Growing up, Don lived in multiple places including England and Canada before coming to the United States.
Don worked in the construction industry. During his downtime, he enjoyed fishing, being with family, and enjoying adult beverages. Don was an interesting character, always had a joke to tell, and was a defender of his family to the very end. Don could be a cantankerous old goat, but his family loved him nonetheless.
Don passed away on January 7, 2019 in Little Rock AR.
He was preceded in his death by both his parents Thomas and Annie Blackburn, and his sister May Reynolds.
He leaves behind family including his brothers Tommy Blackburn, Kenneth (Connie) Blackburn, Greg (Marsha) Blackburn, Paul Blackburn and his sister June Blackburn.
In addition to his siblings, he leaves behind many nieces and nephews.
There are no services planned at this time, and instead there will be a Celebration of Life in the near future in Titusville, Florida.
