Donald Boyd McMullen, age 97, passed away on December 29, 2017 peacefully… surrounded by family.
Donald was born on August 22, 1920 to Walter and Addie McMullen. He married Ruth McAllister on July 6, 1940 and they spent 77 years together residing in Meridian, Idaho. He spent his working career in farming. He started his own business specializing in hay chopping for area cattle-feeders until his retirement. Donald loved to ride his Harley, fishing, hunting, and enjoyed many family trips. After his retirement, he loved getting on his tractor and tilling his garden.
Donald is survived by his wife, Ruth of Meridian, ID; daughters, Beverly (Don) Miller of Tacoma, WA, Donna (Jim) Davis of Boise, ID, Linda (Robert) Hamilton of Boise, ID; son, David (Debbie) McMullen of Kuna, ID; 11 grandchildren; and many great and great-great grandchildren.
The family would like to thank everyone at Valley View Nursing for their wonderful care and help. A special thank you to Mark Foust and Sarah O’Brien with Horizon Hospice.
Donald was an honest, hardworking farmer that loved his family and his little Yorkie “Max”.
There will be a family Celebration of Life held at a later date. Condolences may be left for the family on Donald’s tribute page at www.cloverdalefuneralhome.com.
