Mr. Donald "Don" Wank, age 86, of Waxhaw, NC, passed to glory March 3, 2019, after a year-long battle with cancer. He was a lifelong resident of the Salem/Damascus/Alliance Ohio area.
Don was born April 21, 1932 in Leetonia, Ohio, a son of the late Orlan Clyde Wank and Margaret Simmons Wank. Mr. Wank served our country through his service to the United States Air Force. Don was a wonderful husband, loving father to six daughters, and a self-employed businessman. He worked many years at Alliance City Hospital. Don was quick to smile and laugh, and made time for anyone needing a listening ear. His memory will live on through the many lives he has impacted during his 86 years.
