Don Mincey, age 65, of Calhoun died at 7:40 PM, Saturday, July 29th, in Piedmont Hospital of Atlanta. Don was born, September 12, 1957, in Gordon County, a son of the late Randolph Mincey and the former Miss Norma Lee Carter (Mincey); also, he was preceded in death by his daughter, Brittany Mincey.
Don was a member of the 1975 Graduating Class of Calhoun High School and a member of the Coosawattee Masonic Lodge #306 in the Pine Chapel Community. He was a member of the Heritage Baptist Church and a Past-President of the Calhoun Lions Club. He enjoyed riding his Harley and traveling in his R.V. and loved to eat after finding that elusive hole-in-the-wall-restaurant… He was always right as friends and family would say.

Mincey (Chantal) of Maine and Brandi Homs (Josh) of Texas; brother Randy Mincey (Debbie) and sister, Judy Lee Mincey; 9 grandchildren, Andrew (Kallie) Mincey, Trinity Mincey, Dalayna Mincey, Dalyah Mincey, Stephanie Tuttle, Kylah Tuttle, Jacob Homs, Kendall Homs, and Carter Homs, and his beloved dog, “Lily” who had belonged to Brittany.
