Donald Lee Fenner, age 93, passed away peacefully at his home onWednesday, April 10, 2024 at 7:05 pm in East Danville, Ohio.  
 He was born September 20, 1930 in East Danville, Ohio, son of the late Lewis Cleo and Minnie (Meyer) Fenner of Hillsboro. His siblings included: Ruth Ann, Lloyd Allen, Dorsey Lee, Dorey L. and Mamie Ellen, all deceased.
Donny was baptized into the body of Jesus Christ on July 4, 1963 by Frank McCrady, Sr., a minister in the Worldwide Church of God, and has faithfully attended the United Church of God, an International Association, in Milford. Ohio since May of 1995. Don enjoyed getting together with his church brethren, especially when food was involved. Don attended school in Owensville and Danville, Ohio. He chose to become a carpenter and worked in Columbus, Ohio and in Miami, Florida for many years until his retirement. His hobbies included riding a Harley, fishing, listening to sermons, gardening, and cutting wood to heat his home. Don was a self- sufficient man, not requiring help from anyone. Don loved to talk about the Bible and wondered what he would be doing in the Kingdom of God. On one of the last visits, Don quoted the following scripture in Romans 8:18, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
