Donald E. Bancroft|
July 23, 1929 - June 16, 2014
Don Bancroft, age 84, died peacefully at Salem Hospital on Monday. He was born in Beaver Creek, Lincoln County, Oregon to J. Albert Wyrick and Ruth (Magee) Bancroft. He lived in the Salem area most of his life.
Don had a sweet spirit, had many friends and cared a great deal about his family. He had been a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church for many years and found great comfort in Scripture. In 1980 he married Annette Campbell, and they enjoyed ten years together before her death in 1990.
Special thanks goes to the caregivers he had over the years, but especially to Diane Mitchell. Don was preceded in death by his parents, his wife and brother, Zale. He is survived by nieces Jessie Howard, Dallas and Ila Schunter, Willamina; and several cousins, including Judy Settlemier of Salem and Dave Bancroft of Flagstaff, Arizona.
No services are planned. Interment will be at Restlawn Mausoleum under the direction of Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service.
