Donald George Clough
Feb. 22, 1925–Sept. 26, 2015
“Don was well known as a person that never complained about anything and never had a bad word word to say about others.”
Donald George Clough, 90, of Washougal, passed way peacefully, at the Ray Hickey Hospice House in Vancouver, on Sept. 26, 2015, surrounded by family members. He was born in Gregory, SD, to Earl and Cora Clough. At birth, the doctor advised his parents that their premature infant be kept warm because their tiny son had a slim chance of survival. Weighing in at 2 pounds, Don had more ambitious plans ahead of him after those first few weeks in a shoebox in the warming oven above the wood stove. This was only his first display of strength and determination. The family moved to Camas in 1938. Don attended Camas schools where he enjoyed baseball and football.
Don went on to become an expert swimmer. He was a U.S. Marine stationed in the South Pacific during WWII, trusted machine operator, dock worker, and most importantly, a dedicated husband and father.
Don fell in love with Norma Nelson and they were married in 1957. They moved to Washougal and were blessed with three daughters: Christie Cox (Doug), Connie Rocha (Dave), and Carol Lackey (Mitch).
