Donald L. Coon, age 96 of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, died on April 7, 2020 at Scottsbluff.

The family has chosen to have a Memorial service, but will be held and announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to either The Residency or to Bridgeport Fire and Rescue.

Don was born on November 2, 1923 at Gordon, Nebraska to Arthur and Jean (Park) Coon. He attended the Albany school and graduated from Gordon High School in 1941. After high school, Don farmed until leaving to serve in the Army Air Corps during World War II. Once discharged, he returned to farm for a short time. He worked for over 30 years for the Farmers Coop at Gordon and for Panhandle Coop Association at Bridgeport and Scottsbluff.

On April 27, 1950, Donald and Joy Hanks were married at Gordon. To this union, three children were born: Jim, Judy and Jon. Don was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, golfing and gardening.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Joy; parents, Arthur and Jean Coon; and sisters Doris Coon and Audrey Coon Benedict.

Don is survived by sons Jim (Mary) Coon, Jon (Diane) Coon, all of Bayard, and daughter Judy (Ray) Taylor of Chappell. Other survivors include six grandchildren: Jill (Brent) Goertzen, Kelly and Matthew Coon, Becky (Kyle) Herber, Madi (Mike) Simons and Alex (Hannah) Coon; ten great grandchildren; sisters-in-law Beverly Hanks and Barbara Burleigh, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed taking care of Don. He loved his family dearly and loved having you visit or taking him out to family get togethers. He was a great man and I'm glad I met him. Cherish those memories of your times with him.
