Don Carothers Obituary


Don Carothers, age 74, formerly of North Washington passed away on Wednesday February 7, 2024 at his home in Butler.

Don, know as Donnie to some, was born on April 4, 1949 and grew up in Western PA and lived also in Florida and Nevada before returning to western PA prior to his retirement.  Don spent time in the National Guard and worked for a home builder before retiring from Underground Solutions in 2010.

Don loved hunting, working on projects around the house and garage and could be found watching either a hunting show or a Penguins hockey game in his spare time.  Video chats with his great-grandchildren and visits to see family brought him much enjoyment in later years.  Don’s quick wit, sense of humor, and his commitment to family will be greatly missed by all who knew him. 

Don was preceded in death by his parents, Jamison and Ila Carothers.  He is survived by his wife of many years, Kim (Bell), of Butler; his sister: Bonnie (Bob) Atkinson of Butler; his daughter: Jaime (Jarrod) Hamilton; grandson, Jayce Carothers; granddaughter, Mackenzie Hamilton; and beloved twin great granddaughters, Raelynn and Azalea Carothers all of Las Vegas, Nevada; nephew, Shawn (Augusta) Atkinson, and family of Butler; and sister-in-law, Robyn (Steve) Zampella of Palm Harbor, Florida.    

Family and Friends will be received for Visitation from 3:00-7:00 pm Monday February 12, 2024 at the William F. Young Funeral Home 132 Main Street West Sunbury.  Funeral Services will be held at 7:00 pm with Retired Pastor Barry Mohney officiating.
