Obituary for Don Calvin Jarrett

Don Calvin Jarrett went home with the Lord on April 21, 2023, after a long illness. He was born March 1, 1931, in Milburn, WV, to the late Thearon Jarrett Sr. and Mary Drain Jarrett. Donnie attended Lansing Baptist Church and was a former employee of Long Airdox. Donnie was a Veteran of the Korean War, serving in Battery A 220th Armored Field Artillery Battalion.
Donnie is preceded in death by four sisters: Pauline Workman, Shirley Blethen, Caroline Smathers, and Lenore Treadway, and four brothers: John Jarrett, Thearon Jarrett Jr., Cecil Jarrett, and James Jarrett. He is survived by one brother Benjamin Jarrett.
Those left to celebrate his life and cherish his memory include his wife of over 60 years, Edith Avis Jarrett, and children: Jack Jarrett (Patricia), Annette Ashley (David), and Elaine Chandler (Jerry). Donnie was also the proud grandfather to three grandsons, Greg Jarrett (Melissa), Wayne Phillips (Jessica), Elijah Chandler (Chelsea), and two granddaughters Heather Crook (Travis), Melissa Chandler (Jake), and several great-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren.
Donnie was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed re-loading, fishing, and hunting. He enjoyed tinkering in the garage, sitting on the porch, and especially spending time with family. He lived a blessed, successful life and passed on the wisdom that can only come from a life full of experience, hard work, integrity, and honesty. “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints” Psalms 116:15.
