Donald Lee Roar
Donald Lee RoarHandymanDonald Lee Roar, 66 of Prospect died unexpectedly Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at home.

He was born December 22, 1953 in Delaware to the late Alva and Mary (Long) Roar. He was also preceded in death by an infant sister, Dorothy.

On September 29, 1982 he married Joyce Jean Ransome in Delaware and she survives in Prospect.

Donald had worked at Whirlpool in Marion and the former Glenwood Range in Delaware. He most recently worked part time at Menards. He liked to keep his hands busy and could fix anything. He enjoyed tinkering in his garage and working on his Toyota truck. Donald made good use of his talents by flipping houses with his brother-in-law, Steve Ransome. He enjoyed watching The History Channel, old westerns and sci-fi. He was a loving husband and dad and a doting grandpa.

Besides his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Kalee (Michael) Richmond, Morral; Kaci Roar, Marion; a brother, Alva “Sonny” (Kaye) Roar, Columbus; two sisters, Helen (Louis) Wilson, Cardington; Hope Roar, Delaware; grandchildren, Breyton, Mylo, Paisley, Knova and Lyrik, as well as several nieces and nephews, and his trusted companion, Dez “Louie”.

Graveside services (all are welcome to attend) will be Monday, March 30, 2020 at 2:00 PM in the Claibourne Cemetery with Pastor Rick Farmer officiating. Due to current health concerns, there will be a private family viewing.

Joyce, I am so shocked to hear of Son's death.  He seemed so good when I last saw him at my mother's birthday party.  As with Dan's death, we never know when our time is up.  I know that you will miss him so very much and that your life will never be the same.  I am so very very sorry.  All my love to you and your family.  Pat
