Donald Eugene Baty
Donald lost his fight with the Covid Virus, December 16, 2020. He was born June 1, 1941.
Donald enjoyed life growing up in Houston and attending Lamar High School. After graduating, he went on to the University of Texas which was an orange and white passion he shared with his dad and brother. Donald was a proud member of the Beta Theta Phi Fraternity where he enjoyed college life and the Longhorn tradition.
After graduating in 1963, Don followed his father and brother's footsteps in the Insurance industry. Don's passion was always helping people and that is just what he did. He placed complicated risks for Insurance brokers in Texas and all around the world while working for Phoenix, Cravens and Wentzel Insurance Companies.
He loved Vegas and spent time learning the ropes at a young age which created a passion at the Black Jack table at Baleys. He loved his family and spent all his special days cooking a great meal for all, as well as carrying on with that funny laugh. He was blessed to have a wonderful friend and partner, Debra Pritchett who helped him through the tough times, especially being wiped out by Hurricane Katrina and his courageous battle with cancer. He loved life and lived life and will be missed.
Donald is preceded in death by his mother and his dad Benjamin T.C. Baty, Sr.
He is survived by his brother Ben T. Baty, Jr., (Bonnie); Nephews Rick Baty, (Kathy); Byron Baty, (Beverley) along with great nieces and nephews and one great, great nephew.
A private family service will be held in his honor.
