Donald Weinell was born June 24, 1933, at the family homestead in rural Box Butte County, Nebraska and passed away on July 3, 2024, in West Monroe, Louisiana. 

Mr. Weinell was a veteran of the United States Air Force serving from 1952 until 1973. He was a mechanic and flew as a crewman on the C-124 aircraft. Upon his retirement from the USAF, he worked as an appliance repairman until 1993. Donald could not stay retired and returned to work part-time with Pierremont Exxon “to keep himself busy.” 

In his younger years Donald enjoyed traveling, camping and fishing with his family. In his last few years he enjoyed spending time with his dog, dining out, and watching reruns of his favorite television shows.

Mr. Weinell is preceded in death by his wife, Marie Coburn Weinell; parents, Ernest and Elsie Weinell; sisters, Florence Sydow and Dot Rose; and his grandson, William Weinell.
