Donald Mallett (Don)
Born: May 30, 1943
Died: November 17, 2020
Don Mallett died peacefully at home on November 17th. He joined the church in 1972 and has been an involved, caring, and dynamic presence ever since. His wit and can-do attitude, which was undergirded by a solid faith, will be missed.
We are grateful for all the ways Don’s energy and compassion helped move our congregation forward. He was a faithful regular in the choir and participated in almost every board and committee we have. He helped lead capital campaigns, major renovation projects and served actively on our Facilities and Equipment Committee. He served as church moderator. Don was also central to the construction of the Dale Turner YMCA in Shoreline, named in honor of a beloved pastor of our church.
Don was a leader and he also gave regularly in unseen ways. If you needed a word of encouragement, a compassionate presence, or just a good conversation over breakfast, Don would show up with an encouraging word, a good joke, and a smile. Even in the last few weeks of his life he was serving, encouraging and aiding one of the youth of our church in completion of that young person’s Eagle Scout project. Don and Brenda both have blessed the UCUCC community for many years.
Please hold Brenda and their sons, Ross and family and Marc and family, in your prayers.
