Donald W. Kilmon Sr.


Mr. Donald Wayne “Don” Kilmon Sr., 74, husband of Susan Annis Kilmon, passed away Tuesday, April 26, 2022, at his home in Bloxom. Born Aug. 25, 1947, in Nassawadox and raised in Onancock, he was the son of the late Linwood Henry Kilmon and the late Mary Hart Kilmon.

Don was a graduate of Onancock High School, after which he enlisted and served his country in the U.S. Coast Guard as a helicopter crew chief, and served in Vietnam as specialized detachment in 1968-69.

A true Eastern Shoreman at heart, Don’s work and play revolved around the outdoors. He was a longtime farmer, and was a wastewater supervisor for Holly Farms, Tyson Foods, Perdue Farms, and the Town of Onancock. As far as he was concerned, any day spent boating, hunting, or fishing was a day well and best spent.

In addition to his wife, Don is survived by his son, Donald W. “Donnie” Kilmon Jr., and his wife, Shawna, of Bloxom; sister, Linda Anne Kilmon Belote, of Williamsburg, Va., formerly of Onancock; granddaughter, Samantha Lynn Porter; nephew and nieces, David Christopher “Chris” Belote (Pam), Lori Belote Williams (Todd), Jennifer Belote Fajardo (Kevin), and their families; and his devoted pup and sidekick, Bubba. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother-in-law, David Thomas Belote Jr.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, April 30, 2022, at 3 p.m., at Calvary United Methodist Church in Hunting Creek, with Pastor Wayne Johnson officiating.
