Donald ‘Don’ J. Ward

Donald ‘Don’ J. Ward

Donald “Don” J. Ward, 80, died unexpectedly on Nov. 8, 2022, doing one of the many things he enjoyed so much in life, traveling and exploring new places. He was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Hilda R. Ward. They truly believed they were each other’s soul mates as life for them took on a new meaning when they found each other.  

He was born on June 20, 1942, in Portland, Me., to Donald H. and Barbara R. Ward. He leaves a loving sister, Linda Cleaves, and her husband Rodney, of Greenville, Me., their two daughters and their children. He was predeceased by his younger sister, Karen E. Ward.

He attended Cape Elizabeth High School in 1959 in Cape Elizabeth, Me., and later went on to obtain his license as a Master Electrician. In 1965, he was a member of the Ballardvale United Church in Andover, Mass. He was instrumental in installing the new church’s electrical system and church bells.  He was fortunate at having had a wide range of opportunities, allowing him to enjoy a variety of occupations over the years.  When he lived in Massachusetts, he was a Master Electrician, Electrical Inspector for the Town of Andover, Mass.,, and a Police Officer.  Once he moved to Ft. Myers, Fla., he was an Electrical Inspector, Acting Building Official, Fire Inspector, and finally as Fire Marshal for the City of Fort Myers for 16 years.  He was always up for the challenge.

As a gifted craftsman, woodworker, and carver, he enjoyed working on special woodworking projects.  He created many personalized gifts he loved sharing with his family and friends.  He loved traveling, hiking, skiing and exploring new places with his wife and family.  He never backed down from any adventure that came his way, from white water rafting to zip-lining. He often joked with his wife and friends that most of his adventures seemed to require a helmet.

He was so proud of his sons, James Ward (wife Melina) of Methuen, Mass., and Thomas O’Nan (wife Kelly) of Fort Myers, Fla.  He dearly loved his daughters, Jacqueline Hollenbeck (husband Brian); Jennifer Gardner (husband David Sr.) of Methuen, Mass.; Jessica Owens of Hixson, Tenn.; and Rebecca Foss of Fort Myers, Fla.  

He treasured his nine grandchildren, Michael J. Ward (Kasia), Lauren E. Hurst, Devon Hurst (Allison), Madeline P. Hurst, Jessica E. Ferris (Glen), David Jr. Gardner (Kasey), Zachary Foss, Kyle P. O’Nan, Zoey N. O’Nan; and blessed with six great-grandchildren.

He chose to be cremated, preferring not to have a memorial service.  His family will gather in the spring to spread his ashes and share memories along the water of the Two Lights lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, Me.  He spent many years there with his loving grandparents. He had beautiful memories of his younger years there.  He worked the lobster traps with his grandfather, cooked with his grandmother, spent time with family, friends and cousins, enjoying life by the sea. 

Please consider donating in his honor to one of his favorite charities: The Wounded Warrior Project, the Disabled American Veterans and the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

“Thank you, Dad; we love you and will miss you greatly.”

Bart Edward Kimmey

Bart Edward Kimmey

Bart Edward Kimmey, 77, passed from this life on Nov. 26, 2022.

Born on Sept. 14, 1945, he was a wonderful family man and a great provider who will long be remembered by those who loved him dearly: his wife of 53 years, Linda Rhoden Kimmey; his daughter, Tara Jean Kimmey; his grandchildren, Samantha, Savannah, and Robert Washington, Jr.; his great-granddaughter, Nevaeh Snead; his brother, Alan Kimmey; his nephews, Richard Hopson, Daniel Hopson (Lolita), and Gregory Abair; his niece, Cynthia Abair; his great-nephews, Christopher Abair and Jedidiah, Jeshua, and Jessie Hopson; and his great-niece, Karlea Abair. He was predeceased by his daughter, Dawn Marie Kimmey; his mother and stepfather, Mary Elizabeth Murphy Rosenberger and Fred Rosenberger; and his sister, Gail Abair.

He enjoyed life. His very real claim to fame was being a professional bowler on the PBA tour. He actually bowled a game with a perfect score of 300 and a set with a score of 807. He was a jokester with a laid back attitude who was always looking for an opportunity to give advice about life in general. He was artistic and used his ability and talent in his career as a sign painter. All of his work was done by hand including some hand painted gold leaf.

He loved listening to music from the ’60s and ’70s. The songs of Elvis, Neil Diamond, The Beach Boys and others of that era were always being played. He enjoyed watching all kinds of sports on television, but his favorite teams were the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Syracuse Orange. His special little pal was a cat named Bree.

Memorial contributions may be made to any local animal shelter, or any local veteran’s organization.

No services are planned at this time.

He grew up in the family business, Mahon Finer Foods Grocery, which had been in the family for two generations. He attended Morgan Park Military Academy where he was appointed Captain of Company D. While at the military academy he played several sports including football, baseball and basketball.

He attended Wheaton, a fine Christian college in Wheaton, Ill. After graduating, he acquired his master’s degree in chemistry and went on to attend Temple University Medical School in Philadelphia, Pa., beginning his residency in General Practice at Tampa General Hospital in Tampa, Fla.

His first family practice was in the Zephyrhills/Dade City area. He then opened his own practice in Tampa. He treated the medical needs of so many through the years including everything from casts and stitches to delivering babies. He truly enjoyed getting to know the families of his patients in the Temple Terrace area. He later became the Director of University of South Florida’s Medical/Physicians office. He and other physicians in the Tampa area were influential in finding land and coordinating the construction of a hospital near the University of South Florida, originally named University Community Hospital.

He enjoyed everything about nature. He loved hiking, biking and watching or playing any sport. He especially loved his travels in Europe. One of his favorite adventures was hiking the Swiss paths. He eventually managed to travel to and hike or bike in eight different European countries. All he ever carried was a backpack.

Raymond H. Wheeler

Raymond H. Wheeler

Raymond H. Wheeler, 93, devoted husband, father, and grandfather, passed away peacefully on Nov. 26, 2022. 

He was born March 31, 1929, to Raymond Sr. and Margaret (Peggy) Wheeler of Cleveland, Ohio. Later, the family moved to Cincinnati where he and his three sisters grew up. He loved the outdoors, camping as a Boy Scout, beekeeping, gardening, and hiking.  His first career choice was forest ranger, but as an extrovert, he decided that would be a bit lonely. 

He was a health enthusiast and athlete to the end. He played football and basketball in high school, then took up track. Passionate about running, he participated in road races all around the South. He finally turned in his running shoes at age 82 when an 88-year-old “gazelle” bested him. From that point, he faithfully went to the Franklin Fitness Center three days a week and walked the hills by his home five days a week. Unstoppable, he continued his fitness program until a few months before he passed. At one point his physical therapist told him he was too speedy on his walker and to slow it down some, which he stubbornly refused to do. 

One sister described him as “always having his nose in a book.”  He loved learning so much that he eventually pursued a PhD in Sociology at the University of Michigan. After earning his PhD, he took a job at the University of South Florida in Tampa and moved his family there in 1965. He worked there as a professor for 40 years, finally retiring at age 72. Moving to Florida provided even more time and sunshine for outdoor adventures, like golf and sailing. 

Always an adventurer, he hitchhiked with a buddy across the U.S. the year after high school graduation. He loved Mexico. In 1992 he traded positions with a professor at the University of South Wales in Australia where he lived and explored for six months. While there, he formed an email relationship with a graduate student and eventual soul mate, Judy. When he returned to the U.S., the couple married, blending their two families together for almost 25 joyous years. She preceded him in death by only 71 days. They simply didn’t want to live without each other.

He loved spending summers in Franklin, eventually buying a home and moving here full time with his beloved wife. They resided here for 22 years. His favorite activities were climbing Mt. LeConte, hiking Wayah Bald, attending book club meetings, going to Wednesday morning breakfast with friends, and exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ray and Peggy Wheeler; his first wife, Peggy Wheeler (yes, his mother and first wife had the same name); his sister, Lois Wheeler Zapf; and his beloved wife, Judy Perry. 

He is survived by two sisters, Donna Wheeler Ditmyer of Toledo, Ohio, and Marjie Wheeler Holcomb (Paul) of Dayton, Ohio; his two children, Art Wheeler (Gail Knowlton) of Raleigh; and Sarah Wheeler Caverhill (Rob) of Atlanta, Ga., and Glenville, N.C.; his two stepchildren, Heather Perry Greist (Hank) of Gainesville, Fla.; and Alex Perry (Julie Simmons) of St. Petersburg, Fla.; five grandchildren: Kirsten Caverhill of Boston, Mass., and Nathan, Jonathan, David, and Benjamin Greist of Gainesville, Fla. 

The family thanks Florence Crauwels for her wonderful caretaking and friendship of Ray and Judy.

A celebration of life will be held this summer in Cincinnati, Ohio, when the family can gather and drink a toast to Uncle Ray. We appreciate all of the prayers, good wishes, love and support from our family and friends. We will miss him deeply and are grateful for his long, rich life.
