Donald “Don” Glen Bath

December 7, 1941 ~ July 13, 2019 – (age 77)

Donald Glen Bath “Don”, 77, of Preston, Idaho, passed away peacefully on July 13, 2019 surrounded by family and the caring staff at Franklin County Medical Center.  He passed as a result of a head injury that was untreatable due to complications of dementia.

He was born on December 7, 1941 in Ely, Nevada to Forest and Eileen Ranson Bath.  He has one brother, Robert Bath of Mesquite, Nevada.  Although Don had been married several times, it was always to the same lovely lady, Rosa Lorayne Messerly Bath.

Together they had four children, Robert (Candis) Bath; Kathy (Bart) Ransbottom; Paula (Mertello) Baird and Mike (Shawnda) Bath.  He is also survived by 11 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and 3 more on the way.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Rosa and by a daughter, Paula.

Don has had a very colorful life full of many stories about everything from who he knew, places he’s lived, things he has seen and loves he has lost.  He was a lover of camping and music and all things pertaining to Nevada.

There will be no services as per his request.  He will be cremated and laid to rest with his wife in White Pine County, Nevada at a later date.

The family would like to express our love and gratitude to Franklin County Ambulance, Franklin County Medical Center, Preston City Police and County Sheriff’s and our amazing community.  It really does take a village to raise a family.
