Donald Garwood

December 2, 1940 — April 29, 2019

Donald "Don" D. Garwood, Sr., 78, of Greenville, Ohio passed away on Monday, April 29, 2019 at the Versailles Health Center in Versailles, Ohio.

He was born on December 2, 1940 in Dayton, Ohio to the late Deloyd and Jessie (Smith) Garwood.

Don spent several years working for the City of Greenville's street department, until he retired in 1981. He loved watching western movies and shows, such as Gun Smoke, MASH, and "wraslin".
