Obituary for Lora Don Freshour

Lora Don Freshour, 85, of Reedy, WV passed quietly in his sleep in the hospital on December 21, 2017. He bravely battled many illnesses.
Don was born June 23, 1932 in Cremo, WV the son of the late Bertha Starcher. He was a proud 20-year retired veteran of the U.S. Army. As a Sergeant First Class E-7, honorably discharged, he had a distinguished service record, being awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Air Medal, the Good Conduct Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal. Don served two tours of duty in Viet Nam. He also served in Korea. As a civilian, he worked in maintenance for the WV Department of Highways. He was a former Heath Services Worker for the Spencer State Hospital and retired from his civilian work career with Westbrook Health Services where he loved working with his clients at their group home.
Surviving are his three children: Cynthia (Cindy) Miller and her husband, Jeff of Burning Springs, WV; Patricia (Trish) Freshour of Raleigh, NC; and Michael (Mike) Freshour and his wife Diane of Parkersburg, WV; five grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; one brother, Pete Starcher of Arnoldsburg, WV, and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by four brothers, Bobby Ray, Woodrow, Ben, and Harold; and three sisters, Geraldine, Earldine, and Margie.
He dearly loved his devoted rat terrier, Bo. He enjoyed chewing his tobacco, watching WVU and Marshall football and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was a regular patron at Tudors Biscuit World and riding the electric cart at Walmart.
He loved his “other daughter,” Sandra “Sam” Nichols of Spencer, WV. She was more than a caregiver to Don; she was a very special friend.
His family also wishes to extend much heartfelt thanks to the nursing staff at Marietta Memorial Hospital in Marietta, Ohio, for the excellent care and dignity to Don in his final days.
A funeral service will be held at Stump Funeral Home & Cremation, Inc., Grantsville, WV on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Visitation will be held at the funeral home Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. Interment will be in Hur Cemetery with full military honors.
