On Sunday, Aug. 23, 2020, Donald L. LaMontagne, loving husband and father of seven, passed away at the age of 78, the result of Myelodysplastic Syndrome.
During his working career he served in the U.S. Army, managed several restaurants, was logistics manager for Pac West and co-owner of Built by Owner.
After retiring, Don pursued his passion for community service in the South Whidbey Chapter of Kiwanis, Relay for Life and countless hours in Hearts and Hammers. As a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Don found many other opportunities to serve. An avid baseball lover, Don was a loyal fan of the Seattle Mariners. When he wasn’t listening to or watching a game, he could be found reading. He was an unselfish, loyal and generous person. His larger than life presence will be greatly missed.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Sandra Lynn Scott. He is survived by his wife, Shirley Jean Morrison; children, Marlee (Bob) Riggin, December LaMontagne, Juli Dollmeyer, June (Tom) Meehan, D. Scott (Raleigh) LaMontagne, Lynn Dollmeyer and Merrilee Dollmeyer; grandchildren, Robert, Ross and Ryan (Chelsea) Riggin, Emily (Daniel) Martiniello, Kylie Brown and Ava Simone Hortelius; great grandchildren, Baylee, Kaylin, Taylor, Logan, Ayden, Delilah, Abigail and Robert Riggin; brother, Bernard (Velma) LaMontagne; and sisters, Sandy LaMontagne and Linda Duby.
He will be laid to rest 11 a.m. Sept. 1, 2020, at Bayview Cemetery on Whidbey Island.
