Don Edwin Wadsworth, better known as Donnie, Dad or Granddad, took his last at bat March 23, 2016 at the age of 80 years young. Donnie was born Nov. 29, 1935 to M. Loyd and Ruthie Audrey Wadsworth, in Ellis County, somewhere between Maypearl and Midlothian. He was a proud 1953 graduate of Midlothian High School. In 1959, Donnie married Katherine Dellinger and they spent more than 56 years together. For 30 years, he worked for Oilwell Division of U.S. Steel, retiring in 1986. Other occupations filled time until he found his calling as a greeter at Walmart. Donnie never met a stranger and loved that time catching up with friends and family. But his true joy was his family. He and Kathy traveled many miles to watch football, baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball and soccer. And LOVED every minute of it! He is survived by his wife, Katherine Dellinger Wadsworth, children, Kim Davis and husband, Waylon and Jeff Wadsworth and wife, Kristi, grandchildren, Hunter Judson Davis, Kayli Rae Crouch, Garrett Lane Davis and Nolan Wade Davis, and siblings, Harvey Joe Wadsworth and Peggy Carbajal and husband, Ramiro.
