Clinton Donald "Don" Fackrell, 66, passed away peacefully at home on April 12, 2018, after a short battle with neuro-endocrine cancer. He was born on May 27, 1951 in Nampa, Idaho the first of seven children to Wilbert Clinton Fackrell and Vera Leona (Crawford). He moved shortly thereafter, with his family, to Oregon, the state he called "home". Don served a mission in the Indiana / Michigan Mission.

During his Air Force career, Don and the family resided in Turkey, Japan, Colorado, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. They always considered it a blessing to be able to travel and learn about other cultures and customs. After retiring in 1995, Don moved his family back to Oregon where he worked for the United States Postal Service in Corvallis and then Woodburn. He was a friendly and familiar face to many at the Woodburn Post Office until his second retirement in June of 2017.
Don was actively involved in the Cub Scout program even after he became ill. He greatly enjoyed working with that program and supporting others in their Cub Scout positions.
He was an avid Indexer doing his part to ensure that historical records were archived making them available for genealogical research. He would encourage and guide others to become involved in the indexing program.
