Obituary for Donald Mattox

Donald Mattox
Donald Ray Mattox, 82, of Toledo, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, September 30, 2017. Don graduated from Macomber High School in 1953, then joined the Army and trained on tanks, until getting chosen to be in the Third Armored Division Army Chorus. As part of the Chorus, he toured throughout East and West Germany giving concerts. Upon coming home, Don sang locally as a soloist, and in various church quartets and choirs.

He was a song director at Dorr Street Church of God for many years. He married Phyllis Bunner in 1961. They celebrated 56 years of marriage on September 9, 2017. He was a Jewel Tea man, an accountant, and worked at Hans Hansen, in his younger years. He worked as a Lead Security Officer for the latter part of his life. Don was a gentle giant who infused good morals and values into everyone close to him. He always had a song in his heart and a whistle on his lips. He put a smile on people's faces with his quick wit.

Don is survived by his wife, Phyllis; daughter, Sharron Pappas (Scott Clapsaddle); grandkids, Cindy Rhodes, and Stephanie (Luc) Matard; great grandkids, Alora, Delia, PJ, and Sophia; 3 step-grandkids and 5 step-great-grandkids.
