Mr. Don Anthony Agan, age 62, of Aragon, GA, received his long, awaited healing Tuesday evening, October 8, 2019, in his earthly home, surrounded by his loving family.

Don never met a stranger and his infectious charm would light up a room. His strong faith carried him through life, and he shared it with others, not only by his words, but also in his actions. He was a hard-working man but always made his family his top priority.
