McGarry, Donn R. Grand Rapids, MI Donn R. McGarry, aged 67, passed away Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Donn enjoyed reading about the history of the Titanic and also about US Presidential history, the music of Harry Chapin, comedy of Emo Philips, and the Far Side Comics. He also had an interest in collecting coins. He was a loving grandpa who enjoyed doing just about anything with his grandkids. Some of his fondest memories were of trips to Mammoth Caves in Kentucky with his grandchildren.

In accordance with Donn's wishes cremation has taken place, there are no formal services planned, and his remains will be buried in St. Andrew's Cemetery. The family wishes to thank the staff of SKLD Wyoming for the wonderful care they provided during the last years of his life.
