Don Gary Mugford II 7/22/1970 - 3/21/2019 BARRE — Don’s happiest times were spent loving his family, friends and the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. He is survived by his mother and three sisters, who were very dear to him. Don was a talented painter and gifted at communicating with people - just like his father. He had a way of making others feel comfortable and accepted with his genuine, caring and larger-than-life spirit. Don was a deep, humble, humorous and inspiring man who gave bear hugs and could capture your heart with his infectious smile and laughter. Family is forever, and Don will forever be loved. Don’s service will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, at the Barre Congregational Church, 35 Church St. in Barre. This is a spiritual service for sharing loving thoughts and music. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, Don’s family would greatly appreciate any donations in his memory to be gifted to Turning Point Center of Central Vermont, P.O. Box 887, Barre, VT 05641.
