On July 14, 2021, at the age of 86, Rev. Donald Roger Isbell Sr. left his old tattered body and took flight into the loving arms of his Lord and Savior.

When he retired as general contractor, he returned back to his home town for six years before moving to Dobson, N.C. to be near their daughter, Maylene and her family.
