Born December 30, 1934 in SLC to John Raymond and Lola Jane Aiken Kilpack. He married LaNita 'Pete' Granger April 9, 1955. They were later divorced but remained close friends throughout life spending time with and celebrating their five children. Don had a zest for life and touched the lives of all who knew him with his great sense of humor, beautiful singing voice and fun personality. He loved everyone and made friends easily. He always joked that he'd been born 50 years too late, as he loved everything about "cowboy" life; the mountains, desert, camping, fishing and horses. He loved spending time at the family cabin in Sanpete County and lived there for a few years after he retired. He loved laughter and good times. Don was born singing and had a beautiful base voice. He was listening to Marty Robbins when he passed away. He believed in being fair and honest, and was always a gentle and kind person. He was a bricklayer in his earlier years, then worked for the City of South Salt Lake, retiring after 12 years of service. He is survived by his five children William D. 'Bill' (Laura) Kilpack, Herriman; Robert J. 'Bob' (Joan) Kilpack, Bennion; Ray M. (Annette) Kilpack, Taylorsville; Kelly L Greco, St George; Cynthia D. 'Cindy' (Mitch) Smith, North Salt Lake, all in Utah; 21 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren; sister, Myrna (Claude) White, Sandy; Preceded in death by his parents and sister Deborah.
