Donald Benjiman McStotts Jr. passed away on January 31, 2017 following a courageous battle with multiple health issues. Don was born on June 28, 1946 in Salt Lake City to Helen and Don McStotts. Don graduated from Granite High School in 1964. He proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1967- 1969. He worked as a machinist in the aerospace industry for several different companies. Don had a unique gift of providing people with moral support, a kind word or nancial assistance. Don enjoyed hunting shing and coin collecting. Don's greatest joy was his grandson, Brayden. They enjoyed many telephone conversations together.

He was preceded in death by his parents Don and Helen; special sister Tiny Hope; prior spouses Judy Bland and Trudy Shirley; and special companion dog, Josie, who could alert him when his blood sugar was low and always by his side.

Special thanks to all the wonderful staff and volunteers at the VA Hospital, especially Nicole Stephens.
