Donald Richard Golden, born Sept. 22, 1937, to Arthur and Erma Golden of Mentone, went to be with Jesus at 4 a.m., June 26, 2020.
Don was an army veteran with a passion for engines, exploring junk yards, and most of all a love for Jesus. Throughout his life he was instrumental in establishing churches through his love of ministering in song. This passion was shared with his wife Jewell, who, accompanied him on piano.
Donald was survived by his wife of 55 years, Jewell Kaye (Mendenhall). He is also survived by six children, 15 grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and two siblings. He was preceded in death by both of his parents and six siblings.
A memorial service honoring the life of Donald Golden will be held at The Wooded Knot located at 4655 State Road 10 Tippecanoe IN 46570.
The service will be from 4-8 p.m. on Saturday July. Light snacks will be provided. A donation box will be available for contributions to purchase a headstone for both Donald and Jewell.
