Donald Lee Brummett passed away peacefully on February 16, 2024, in Tempe, Arizona at Mirabella at ASU.

Born in Eugene, Oregon on November 9, 1939, to Gordon and Gladys Brummett, he moved to Douglas, Arizona where he graduated from Douglas High School, and then moved to Tempe, Arizona where he attended Arizona State University and met his future wife Lynda Grace Lecky.

Donald spent over 30 years working as a Research Technician for the USDA Cotton Research Lab in Phoenix where he met many lifelong friends and often said “he never worked a day in his life.” Donald especially enjoyed spending time with his wife and two boys on their small ranch in Chandler, Arizona raising and showing Arabian horses, hunting, fishing, and spending time in Pinetop-Lakeside.

He is survived by his sons and daughters-in-law Dan & Sandi Brummett, Dave & Jaime Brummett, 3 grandchildren, 2 great-granddaughters, his sister & brother-in-law Patricia & Charlie Chandler, brother Bob Brummett, sisters-in-law, Judy Haefner and Kay Ruston, and multiple nieces and nephews who each held a dear place in his heart.  He will be greatly missed and is now resting peacefully with his wife of 60 years, Lynda Brummett.

Funeral arrangements for Donald will be through Bunker Family University Chapel, 3529 E. University Dr, Mesa, AZ with a graveside ceremony at 10:00 am on Friday, February 23rd at Greenwood Memory Lawn, 719 N. 27th Ave, Phoenix, AZ

  • I am truly saddened upon hearing of Dan‘s passing. I had the privilege of being his neighbor and friend for sometime and I will miss his presence in my life. He raised a fine family and his children and grandchildren are reflection of Don life. May God bless and keep all of you and once again, I thank him for putting Dan in my life for all these years
