Don was born February 9, 1934 in Groveton, Texas to Onan J. and Wilhelmina Willis and passed from this life on his birthday February 9, 2011 in Conroe, Texas. Don preached in Church of Christ congregation full time beginning at the age of 16 in the region surrounding Groveton, Texas. After two years at Florida College, and work in a few congregations in Florida, Don returned to Texas and soon married Marilyn Janice Riggs, his wife of 56 years. Don spent the majority of his life preaching in Texas but spent a few profitable years in Kansas and Missouri. His humility and patience afforded him great effectiveness in teaching the gospel in private settings. Many were brought to faithfulness by his efforts. His last 20 years were spent working in San Antonio, Madisonville, and New Caney. He was greatly loved by all and will be missed. He is survived by his wife Marilyn Willis, his daughter Cathy Price and husband David, his son Don Willis, his son Charles Willis and wife Deanna, his daughter Christie Estes and husband Steven, 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. His last birthday was the best, for he got to see His Lord.
