Donald O Boudeman, 78, passed away February 15, 2019 at Westwood Health and Rehab. He was born in Los Angeles, Calif. February 21, 1940 to Donald and Dorothy Boudeman.
After high school he served in the Navy for four years and went onto work for Xerox in San Diego for 10 years. Though he started life on the west coast, he was drawn to Arkansas where he eventually purchased a log cabin on 40 acres in Huntsville to pursue farm life raising calves and hogs. He later went on to study Animal Science and Philosophy at the University of Arkansas. Don was well rounded and an avid reader.
He loved space travel and followed it closely. In addition, he enjoyed gaming, kayaking, traveling, and building his own house. Eventually Don moved to Fayetteville where he enjoyed being close to the college and other activities in the area.
He is survived by his sister, Stephanie Hempt of Orwell, Vt., his niece, Tiama Connor and her husband and five grand-nieces and nephews.
Funeral arrangements were made by Epting Funeral Home. There will be a private memorial service in the spring celebrating Don's life.
