The Loss of Lion Don Tatum

Shocking news was sent out today. Don Tatum has passed away. Don was a great Lion! He joined our club in 1997 sponsored by Leon Hewlett. You could count on Don to work Market Days, the cleanup the Saturday before Market Day.

Don was active in the Mobile Health Screening Unit. He was a willing volunteer who always had something nice to say to co-workers and clients.

Don just completed two years as a Director on the Lion Board providing his sage advice to the club.

Don's wife, Sally, has suggested any memorials be to the Texas Lions Camp. Their address is P. O. Box 290247, Kerrville, TX 78029-0247. You can contribute directly by this link:

I was shocked and saddened to read in this blogspot of the death of Lion Don Tatum
Don was a GREAT LION and the club will miss his
unswerving support on so many of its activities.
Don was always on the lookout for things he could do to help his fellow Lions, and I remember
with gratitude his help and support on many of the commitees and other Lions functions that we were involved in during my days as a Wimberley Lion. God Bless you Don.
