Donald Edwin Lillie

On Tuesday morning, February 26, 2019, after a long struggle with cancer, Don Lillie, age 70, passed away in his home.

Don was born in Cairo, Georgia to Edwin and Beradene Lillie, the first of two children. He married Sandy and raised two children, Jeremy and Marhya.  He later divorced and married Donna. Their “children” consisted of 3 dogs: Lucy, Mimi, and Dexter.

Don was a very passionate person and it showed in every endeavor he undertook. He had a love for mining, especially underground mining, and liked to share that love with as many people as he could. He was well known in the community as a local business owner and associated with many of the fraternal organizations.

Don had a knack for BBQ, able to turn a simple meat into a chef’s creation. He was famous for traveling to off the chart places and taking the longest “short cuts.”

Don is survived by his wife Donna, his two children, Jeremy (Jennifer), Marhya (Albert), and five grandchildren, Ethan, Caleb, Aiden, Emmersen, and Ruby.

In lieu of a funeral service, there will be a private “Celebration of Life” at a later date.
