Don W. Gresham, Sr. was born in Georgia on October 15, 1953 and passed away peacefully on February 20, 2024 at his home in Camp Hill, Alabama, at the age of 70.

Visitation will be from 1 pm until the time of service at 2 pm on Friday, February 23, 2024 at Linville Memorial Funeral Home. Rev. Calvin McKee will be officiating.

Don is preceded in death by his wife of 48 years, Shelia; his father and mother, Charles and Grace Gresham; brothers, Larry and Martin; and sisters, Wanda, Red and Bettie Ann.

He is survived by his son, Don Gresham, Jr.; daughters, Karyn Hammock (Casey) and Bridget Rutland; grandchildren, Dawson (Moenousha), Hayden, Makinna (Jake), Alyssa and Cole; brother, Orie and sisters, Elaine and Mary.

Don was a devoted husband, loving dad and even better Paw Paw. He spent his life welding in the oil fields but quickly made his way back to Alabama to see his Shelia in his off time. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and quick wit. He would always make light of any situation. You never had to wonder what was on his mind.

His family is saddened by the loss but can find peace knowing his wife met him with open arms. And in his true fashion "Ain't nobody gonna get out of this world alive and I wouldn't miss it for the world."
