    Salt Lake City, Utah---For the first time, the true meaning of Christmas was gathered around Carl Eugene Donelson. Not so much the monetary gifts but his greatest Christmas wish was to have everyone he loved hold his hand through his last lifting breath of life. Courageous and determined in battling with a vicious enemy called cancer at the age of 67, he passed away at home on 25 December, 2001 at 11:32 am. He was born 6 January, 1934, in Zeigler, Illinois, the son of Curtis and Mabel Donelson. He faced many difficult facets during his childhood, but was able to overcome any situation. He was complete upon marrying Verna White on 11 August, 1956 at Mather Air Force Base, Sacramento, California. Aside from work, as a retired military aircraft mechanic at Hill Air Force Base, his greatest happiness were his children. He is survived by his wife, Verna; children, Carl Donelson Jr., Colorado Springs, Colorado, Lisa Lehenbauer, Sandy, Utah and Steven Donelson, Sandy, Utah; grandchildren, Jody Carroll, Carl Donelson, Ill., Chase Lehenbauer, Shaun Donelson, Carlos Donelson, John Linton and Daniel Linton; great-granddaughter; Madison Carroll. He is also survived by brothers, Bill, Bennie and Robert Donelson; and sisters Martha McFarland and Debra Mainer. preceded in death by parents, Curtis and Mabel Donelson and brother Curtis Donelson, Jr. A. memorial service was held 28 December, 2001 at the First Church of The Nazarene in Salt Lake City, Utah, with the Rev. Paul McBride officiating. Carl E. Donelson was generous to give his abundance of love and was absolutely headstrong in his viewpoints about life. In lieu of flowers this gentle kind caring man suggested donating funds to the American Cancer Society, 941 East 3300 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84106
