In Remembrance of...

Don Cantrell, a beloved resident of Birmingham, Alabama, passed away on September 14, 2023, just a few days shy of his 78th birthday. Born on September 18, 1945, Don lived a life full of love, laughter, and a deep sense of community.

Don married the love of his life, Robbie Cantrell, in 1974, and together they built a beautiful life filled with joy and happiness. They were blessed with three children whom they adored, Gerry, Cindy, and Debbie, who brought immense pride and endless love to their parents' lives.

Don worked tirelessly as a steel worker, dedicating his time and energy to a profession that sustained him throughout his career. But his true passion lay in his involvement with the Bethel Baptist Church organization, where he lent a helping hand and brought light into the lives of many.

Known for his infectious smile and warm-hearted nature, Don could light up a room with his presence. He had an incredible knack for making people laugh, and his quick wit was unmatched. Friends and neighbors all knew that a conversation with Don was bound to lift their spirits and leave them with a smile.

Don's love for life was contagious, and he lived each day to the fullest. He could often be found exploring the great outdoors, whether it was camping, fishing, or simply taking long walks in nature. He had an unwavering appreciation for the simple pleasures in life.

Tragically, Don's passing was affected by the untimely loss of his beloved wife, Robbie. Their bond was a beacon of love and strength, and Don's heartache was immeasurable. However, his legacy lives on through his children and the lessons of love and resilience that he instilled in them.

Don leaves behind a multitude of cherished memories and friendships that will continue to bring smiles to the faces of those who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and the community that he served relentlessly.

May his soul find solace in the arms of his beloved Robbie as they are reunited once again. Rest in peace, dear Don Cantrell, and know that your laughter and love will forever echo in our hearts.

You can to the family or in memory of Don Cantrell.
