[Condolences]

Don A. Furr of Columbus, Ohio, died Tuesday, January 28, 2014 surrounded by his family. He was predeceased by parents, Charles Furr, Frances (Pendelton) Niper and step-father, Harold Niper. His infant daughter, Leeann, also predeceased him. Don was a beloved husband, father, and grandfather. His children and grandchildren were his greatest joy. He is survived by his devoted wife of 48 years, Sandi (Follis) Furr; daughters, Staci Perkins and Sunny Nichols (his girls) as well as his eight wonderful grandchildren, Marissa, Cody, Ross, Emma, Mackenzie, Joey, Morgan and Macy. He also leaves behind his father-in-law, Paul Follis. His family will always lovingly remember his Bob-Newhart-meets-Bill-Cosby sense of humor and witty remarks. He loved White Castle, chocolate, jazz, a good mystery book, classic cars and anything British. Don was a jet bomber mechanic while serving in the United States Air Force. He attended The Ohio State University, Columbus State, and took several online courses just for the enjoyment it brought him. He retired from Ohio Water and Waste Supply as a sales rep.
