OBITUARY

Brother Donald Steven Nixon was born in Prescott, AR to the union of late Donald Nixon Sr. and Gloria Stueart Nixon on August 31, 1967. He received the Lord as a young man. He was a member of Cothran Chapel CME Church in Prescott AR. He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in broadcasting at Henderson State University. While attending the university, Donald fulfilled a lifelong dream of radio broadcasting for the university’s radio station. 

Donald was a strong and courageous man of great faith. His faith was exemplified by his shear will to live even when many doctors had given up on him.  Donald’s love for life and the Lord allowed him to live far beyond what could be understood by man.

Donald was an extraordinary man.  His interests included books, music, family gatherings, old TV shows, world news and traveling.  Although his interests were multifaceted, his love of the Lord was above all.  Donald enjoyed attending church services, but when his health made that fellowship impossible he had worship service at home.  God used Donald’s life to show evidence of His Glory and the power of a true Miracle. 

In his last days he expressed that he was tired and requested the presence of his siblings.  With his family at his bedside, the proof of God’s glory was spoken from Donald’s lips.  He stated, “I have seen the mountaintop. It was amazing!”  To know Donald is to know that Miracles do happen and God is still in Control. 

He departed this life on September 3, 2020.  He was preceded in death by his parents Donald Nixon Sr & Gloria Stueart-Nixon and brother Patrick O’Neal Nixon. 

He leaves to cherish his memory siblings Trina (Tony) Gantt of Little Rock, AR, Nicole (Charles) Simon of Prescott, AR, Ada (Raymond) Dismuke of Wake Village, TX, Ruth (Robert) Muldrew, Phillip Nixon both from Prescott, AR, & Don Cornelius Nixon of Texarkana, TX, a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

Lovingly Submitted

Book Description from Amazon

“Are you struggling to find real help in caring for your aging loved one in your home who may be suffering from
dementia as well as other comorbid diseases? Feeling overwhelmed and losing a piece of yourself as you are caregiving
and all the while getting older too? Living in a multigenerational home is starting to be the standard way of most
families these days and keeping organized while providing long-term care can take its toll on the caregiver as well
as their loved ones. How do I balance my life and my loved ones too? We all need a few extra tools and loving support
along the way as caregivers during the tougher times as we navigate the choppy waters of aging, Alzheimer's
and/or dementia, and Parkinson's diseases. Then you have found a safe harbor here. This book will assist you
in getting your lives and your loved ones lives in order and help steer you toward successful caregiving while
lowering your stress as well.

This is our family journey! We all support and care for each other.  Please take time to purchase this
wonderful guide by our family on how we should take care of our loved ones. We send prayers and encouragement
to the Royston Families. Thanks Peggy for putting your caregiving skills in words, so we all can use.
