Donald R. (Don) Ward, 43, of Academy Rd., passed away Tuesday October 26, 2010 at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Utica. He was born July 1, 1967, in Hamilton, the son of Dale Hyman Ward and the late Thomas E. Ward and was educated in Brookfield schools. At one time, Don was employed as a truck driver for Blankenship Trucking of Atlanta, GA. He is survived by a son, Brandon Ward; a daughter, April Ward; his mother, Dale Ward; a stepdaughter, Jenna Cheseboro; and two sisters, June Owen and Julie Furgison, all of Brookfield; two brothers, Robert Perry of Brookfield and Thomas D. Ward of Utica; and several nieces and nephews. Graveside services will be Tuesday at 10 am at the Brookfield Rural Cemetery, with Pastor Mark Thall officiating.

When I read of the passing of Mr. Ward, although I didnt know him, I was moved to express my condolences. Death is never easy to take, and it's even harder when we lose someone so young. Please know that the thoughts and prayers of many are with you. I hope that you will find comfort from each other, your friends and from God. May the hope of the resurrection also help you to endure (John 5:28,29). Please remember the words of Psalms 34:18 "God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." Find comfort and joy in your memories until you see him again... Warmest Regards, Jerilyn
