He is now walking the streets of Gold. No more suffering, no more pain. He retired from Ethyl Vis Queen (now Tredegar) in 1987 after 37 years of service. He was well liked by many friends at Ethyl Vis Queen and was known as “Brownie”, especially to Rocky Nelson and wife Deloris, who reside in Terre Haute. He was also a US Army Veteran and served from 1945-1947.  Don and Mary attended Maplewood Christian Church, Agape Church, and Mt.
