Don Avery was your typical 9th grade student at Sylacauga High School in 1964. He was a good guy and a great friend and he blended in well with our small group of fun loving teenagers.
Don wasn't overly outspoken and I guess that is what made him special. He had a reserved nature but also able to laugh at himself. On the day of his death our little group decided to go hunting in the woods on the edge of town. After a short period of hunting the guys took turns throwing cans into the air and shooting at them. During one attempt a shotgun misfired and as the boy brought the gun down to check it, it fired and struck Don in the back killing him instantly. He left this world at an early age but the impression he made on us has lasted almost 50 years. God Bless You Don and thank you for being our friend.
