Don McNeil Queen, 79, of Buckhannon Run Road, was surrounded by loving family when his day came to join his Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 6, 2019, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Buckhannon.
He was born in Weston on August 11, 1940, a son of the late Brooks Jennings and Ruby Swisher Queen. Also preceding Don in death is one brother, Jerry Michael Queen.
Don was blessed to find his one true love very early in life. He and Evelyn Lough Queen were married on February 27, 1958, and were happily married for 61 years.
Forever cherishing their memories of Don are his wife, Evelyn Queen; three children: Deborah Smith and husband, John, of Weston, Cathy Weaver and husband, Pete, and Don Queen II and wife, Kandas, all of Buckhannon Run Road; five granddaughters: Barbie Paugh and husband, James, Misty Satterfield and husband, Chad, Brienna Shriver, Angie Holden and husband, Curtis, Brittany Curi and husband, Tiago; two grandsons: Scott Hacker and wife, Christina, and Tristen Hacker; ten great-grandchildren; one great-grandchild on-the-way; one uncle, Bill Swisher of Buckhannon; several nieces, nephews and cousins; one brother-in-law, Nelson Lough and wife, Joyce, of Weston; and one sister-in-law, Helen Hardman and husband, Terry, of Horner.
He graduated Weston High School in 1958 and went on to retire from Consolidated Gas after 30 years of loyal service.
Don spent more than 20 years attending The Way of Holiness Church. He was a devout Christian man who loved the Lord passionately. Don served as a role model by demonstrating the love of a Christian husband and father.
He liked to keep his mind and hands busy with woodworking and crafts. He was also a car enthusiast, a founding member of Weston Lions Club and sang in the Lewis County Senior Center Choir. After their early retirement, Don and Evelyn loved to travel and camp together.
Family and friends will gather at The Way of Holiness Church located at 2337 Old Weston Rd. in Buckhannon from 12-3 p.m. on Thursday, October 10, 2019. Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. on Thursday with Pastor Jerry Murrell officiating. Interment will follow at Friendship Cemetery in Berlin.
