Donn, a lifelong resident of Colorado Springs, died suddenly while working on April 3, 2014. He was the youngest of six children born to Willis and Marjorie Bair on July 10, 1951.
The Guest Book is expired.
Growing up, Donn had fond memories of his childhood on the west side of Colorado Springs where he resided until his death. He graduated from Palmer High School ('69) and Western State College ('73).
Donn spent most of his life working in property maintenance and management. He loved working with his hands and spending time in his yard. He will be remembered by his family, friends, and employers for his exceptional work ethic.
Donn was an avid sports fan and long-time season ticket holder for CC Hockey. He particularly enjoyed eating good breakfasts, salsa, and green chili. Donn was a regular reader of newspapers and always had multiple copies of the Independent and Westside Pioneer close by.
Those closest to him will remember Donn for his courage and determination, and his unique sense of humor will be especially missed by his friends and family.
He is survived by his children, Joe Bair and Mary Lew Bair, sister Patricia Johnson, sister Linda Caldwell (Glenn), brother Dennis Bair, sister Kerry Bair, sister Joan George (Sam), and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Willis Bair and Marjorie Carlson, a brother in law Bill Johnson, and a nephew Benjamin George.
A memorial service will be held at 11:30 A.M. on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at the Historic Community Congregational Church, 103 Pawnee Ave, Manitou Springs, Colorado 80829 with Rev. David Hunting officiating.
