Don Edwin Rosendale was born on April 9, 1936 to Orville and Lillian Edwards Rosendale in Woodward, Oklahoma. He departed this life on January 8, 2019 at the age of 82 years. He spent his first years on a farm north of Woodward.
He received his grade school and high school education in Woodward. He was in the National Guard Reserves for ten years and reported for duty every summer.
Don realized his need of a Savior and became a member of the Church of Christ.
Don married Mildred Fast at Adams, Oklahoma on December 28, 1974. They made their home in Woodward. A daughter, Lisa Kimberly was born January 6, 1976. They enjoyed her growing up years.
In 1956, Don opened a shoe repair shop. After a few years he moved his shop to The Outpost. Don did outstanding work in repairing shoes. He bought old boots, restored and sold them.

In August of the following year Lisa experienced headaches and the medical report revealed that she had brain cancer. Lisa graduated to heaven at the age of 22 years. This was a great loss to the family.
He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He made sure his daughter was faithful in church and was taught the Bible.
