He was born on March 6, 1937 in Muncie, a son of the late Homer and Clyda (Stacey) Paschal. Don was known for his work ethic that started at the young age of 8, where he worked at the bowling alley setting pins. He was the provider for his family and worked several jobs during this time that included installing fences, gas station manager, machine operator for Chrysler where he retired after 37 years and was known as “Rascal”. Don was a member of the New Castle Masonic Lodge #91 F&AM. He was handyman at home and could fix anything. He was easy going, had a great sense of humor, loved to fish and watch the birds. Don’s words of wisdom left with us are, “Try to behave” and “It’s a dirty job, but somebodies gotta do it”.
