Donald G. Armstrong

1952 - 2016 INDIAN LAND, SC Donald Gene Armstrong, 64, passed away on June 27, at his residence in South Carolina. He was the husband of Donna (Cornell) Armstrong, his high school sweetheart who he married in August of 1970. Don was born on March 23, 1952, in Bennington, Vermont son of the late Raymond and Bettie (Hilliard) Armstrong. He was educated at schools in Vermont and served in the Army National Guard for six years. Don was formerly employed as a service tech for Stanley Doors. Don and Donna lived in Vermont until 1995, when he built their home in Buskirk, NY and moved to South Carolina 2 years ago. An avid Harley Davidson fan, Don and Donna became the leaders of the pack when it came to riding, camping, and motorcycle trips with all their friends. Don was a talented jack of all trades when it came to any work with your hands. He built two houses from the ground up, kept all the family cars running through the years, and constructed many outbuildings at their home in NY. In his early retirement he opened a motorcycle repair and storage garage to stay busy doing something he loved. Don was diagnosed with ALS in 2012 and after treatment for Lyme disease in India in 2013, he and Donna moved to South Carolina to be closer to family. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend, brother and uncle, and he will be deeply missed. Survivors other than his wife Donna include their children Amy Cole (Mark) of Waxhaw, NC, Jason Armstrong (Kris Kilayko) of Oakland, CA and Tim Armstrong (Jessie Grogan) of Summerville, MA, grandchildren Patrick, Hayley, Faith and Rebekah Cole, Grady and Ellie Armstrong, Stella Armstrong and Aurora Grogan, brothers Keith Armstrong and Herb Armstrong (Judy) all of Pownal, VT, also survived by several neices and nephews.
