Don Hargrave passed away at his home in Star Valley, AZ, on December 1, 2021. In 1929, he was born to Steen and Bernice (Winsor) Hargrave in Phoenix. His folks later bought land in Strawberry, where he graduated from Pine grade school. He then moved to Phoenix to get his high school education at North High, where he excelled in sports. After that he became a painting contractor, painting for the oil companies all over Arizona.

Don is survived by his wife, Nilus (Brown), three children, LaDawn (Rex) Huling, Dan (Storm), and Robin (Lisa); 2 stepchildren, Bill Wahl and Karen Martin; 22 grandchildren; 67 great grandchildren; 1 brother Art (Iwana); and countless other family members. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Dorsey (Gardner), his parents, and brother Bob(Patricia).

Don had a great sense of humor. The nurses who came to check on him always left laughing or at least with smiles on their faces. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Visitation will be at Bunker Mortuary Garden Chapel, 33 North Centennial Way, Mesa, Friday Dec 10, 6-8 PM. Service will be graveside on Saturday, Dec 11, at 11 AM at Mesa Cemetery, 1212 N Center St, Mesa.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Hospice of Payson. Their fantastic team helped care for Don for over a year while he battled cancer.

  • So sorry to hear about Don’s passing . Wasn’t aware of anything till all was done . Knew Don well , always saw him when he lived in Pine (Randall Grandparents home) then he lived in Lehi for sometime ,also visited with him when we went to church in Tonto Basin (that’s where I grew up) . Always a pleasant person , easy to talk to. Just an all around good guy . Stayed close to the Lord & lived the Gospel of Jesus Christ . Will be missed by many ♥️
