He was an Army veteran of the Korean War.


Husband of Geraldine Shaw Lear Koskey


Donald R. Lear Sr.
was the first cousin of my father
Harry Lear (1929-2001)
which would have made him my first
cousin once removed.

Funny thing is I went to school with one
of his daughters and never knew that we
were related until I began digging up the
roots of my family tree.


Though I did not know Donald personally
I respectfully honor his memory with this
memorial since he was a relative of mine.
