COLUMBIANA - Donald D. Hollister passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2022. He was 94 years old.
Don was born on July 10, 1928 in Marietta, Ohio, the son of Amos and Gladene (Robinson) Hollister. He moved to Youngstown in 1948 to work in the steel mills. He worked at Republic Steel (LTV) for 38 years before retiring. He worked in the Mobile Equipment Dept. and operated the crane for many of those years. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1951 and served in Korea until 1953. He continued his service in the Army Reserves for the next 5 years. Donald was a proud member of the American Legion Post 290 in Columbiana, Ohio.
He is survived by his wife of 71 years, Donna May (McRill), whom he married on May 13, 1951, his three daughters, Barbara Feaster, Martha (Russell) Alexander, and Jacqueline Hollister, four grandchildren, Niki (Philip) Koch, Julie (Keith) Whan, Heather (William) McCabe, and Marcus Feaster, along with seven great grandchildren. He is also survived by a sister Edna (Andy) Anderson.
Some of his favorite activities included building things, traveling out west, and boating. His favorite place to be was with his tools working on a project. He could find a way to fix almost anything and enjoyed the challenge.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by two brothers, Jack and Dewey, and a sister Edith (Ed) Bleyer.
