I know a lot of people but I don’t have many true friends. If you can go through life and Donald J. Treadway have two or three true May 26, 1941 – Dec. 7, 2010 friends you are lucky. I lost one of my real friends this past week. A man I have known for a long time. I worked for and with this man and I feel very lucky to have called him a friend. The man I am talking about is “Donald Treadway” or “Don-o” as I called him. He served 28 years on the County Commission. He was a professional photographer for most of his life. He probably has taken your photo or at least someone in your family’s photo. He was a great person, husband, father, and grandfather. He would come by about once a week and talk about football, basketball, and golf. Especially golf, he loved golf. Don was taken from us way too early and he will be deeply missed by a lot of people. All our prayers go out to his family. Dono thanks for all the memories. Carter County Gazette Weekly Publication delivered to Carter County on Saturdays.
