Donald Cass Stemple,

The last surviving child of the late Earl and Dora Stemple, he was born May 3, 1928, in Aurora, WV.
Don was a graduate of Aurora High School and served as an MP in the Army during the Korean Conflict. He worked for the Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation Service and also worked in the coal industry for many years. He drove the feed truck for Bruceton Ag for over 20 years, where he enjoyed the camaraderie of fellow farmers, and he loved farming his 204 acre farm. Don was a member of the Bruceton United Methodist Church and was also a member of the Woodmen of the World for over 50 years.
He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Elizabeth Knotts Stemple; five children: Scott (Geri) Stemple, Jeff (Beverly) Stemple, Sharon (Dennis) Harsh, Roger (Leah) Stemple, and Beth (Jason) Bishop, all of Bruceton Mills, WV. The lights of his life were his nine grandchildren: Andrea (Erick) Lemley, Aaron (Kelsey) Stemple, Meredith (Jerrod) Harteis, Cody (Chelsea Hoover) Harsh, Daniel (Abigail Shillingburg) Harsh, Lucas (Katelyn) Stemple, Morgan (Brandon Osborne) Stemple, Kyler Bishop, and Cassie Bishop. He is also survived by nine great-grandchildren and his fur baby, best buddy, Brody.
In addition to his parents, Don was preceded in death by his two brothers, Charles and Melvin Stemple; three sisters: Mildred Kovalch, Madeline Wotring, and Margaret Case.
