Donald Sherburn

March 22, 1946 — November 9, 2023

Ball Ground

Donald Raymond Sherburn Sr. of Ballground Georgia passed away peacefully at home on November 9, 2023, at 77 years old. He will be greatly missed for his sense of humor and wild tales about his life’s stories. His love for people and genuine concern for everyone was evident by his Christian nature. He loved his family, and his children deeply. He was patient and always accepting of people just as they were.

Donald was born in Lancaster, Ohio. He spent his early years dabbling in work such as working in a glass factory and working on machinery. His ultimate joy in work was found when he learned the art of welding and fabrication. He retired from Wheelabrator Group in LaGrange Georgia in 2008. He was very proud of his work and endeavored to be the best in his craft. Donald enjoyed fishing and was very good at it. He delighted in gold prospecting and eagerly watched shows to learn it.

 Donald is survived in life by his five children, Donald Sherburn Jr (Nancy), Barbara Pierce (Todd), Lisa Sherburn, Michael Sherburn (Matthew Coleman) and Allison Hyde (Micheal). He was especially fond of babies and was survived by his grandchildren, Michael and Dakota Pierce (Barbara), Cara Sherburn (Donald Jr.) Wilson and Jessica Chancey (Lisa), Bailee and Ryland Hyde (Allison) and great grandchildren, Sophia, Lilith and Miles Pierce, Maliah Martin, Luke and Leia Michaels. He is also survived by his brother Robert Sherburn (Terry).
