In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Betty Collins Pendleton, and his brother, Billy Wayne Pendleton.

He truly will be missed by his daughter, Tammy Pendleton Stevenson and husband Mark and the person who held the key to his heart, his granddaughter, Megan Sue Stevenson and her two children, Logan Ramey and Ethan Stevenson; nieces and nephews, Allen Pendleton and wife Lynn, Steve Pendleton and wife Angie, Russell Collins, Crystal Garcia, Deborah Hildebrand and April Salyvant.

Don's request has been honored, his body has been cremated. A memorial service to honor Don's life will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday (today) from the Burns Wornal Chapel of the Memorial Funeral Directory on the Athens Road in Princeton with Pastor Marvin Mills officiating.

His cremains will be entombed in the Chapel of the Wildwood, Roselawn Memorial Gardens Mausoleum in Princeton.
