There are condolences waiting approval on DONALD's Tribute wall

Donald Eugene Dunnavant, 76, of Fulton was called to his Heavenly home on Wednesday, October 25, 2017.

He was born on February 6, 1941 in St. Louis, the son of the late Joseph Clarence Dunnavant and the late Eva Fay (Potts) Dunnavant.

A dedicated employee, Don worked as a lineman for the City of Fulton Electric Department for thirty-six years.  His hobbies included woodworking, fishing, and watching sports on television.  While he enjoyed those activities, spending time with his grandchildren brought him the most pleasure.  Don was a man of great faith and was a member of Hams Prairie Christian Church.
