Tribute & Message From The Family

Donald Angus McElduff, born July 22, 1934, to Isabelle J Loveless McElduff and Robert Angus McElduff, in Great Falls, SC passed peacefully into his eternal home on August 9, 2020.

Attended Great Falls Schools and after graduation served in the army for two years. He did basic training at Fort Gordon and was then shipped to Germany. He joined the SC Highway Patrol in 1957 and was stationed in Spartanburg until he retired in 1988. He married his loving wife, Libby, December 16, 1958. Don was active in the Fairforest Ruritan and Fairforest Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon. He was a member of Carpenters for Christ and served on many mission trips with some wonderful friends. He also served on the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief.

Don loved hunting, farming and fishing. After retirement he went to work for SJWD Water works as the Lake Cooley Warden along with his good buddy Paul Parris.
Don and Libby loved to travel and had the opportunity to travel to all 50 states and many of them with their special travel buddies, Larry and Aughtry Owens.
Don moved to Mt Pleasant in 2013. He joined First Baptist Mt Pleasant and loved being in the John and Becky Bradham SS Class along with some wonderful Christian Friends. Don loved to sit in his garage and talk to his friend Jerry as they each tried to solve the world's problems. Don also loved his backdoor neighbor Tim who reminded him when the filter needed to be changed or the lake bank needed trimming. Most of all he loved being close to his beautiful daughters who constantly reminded him of how much they loved him.

Don only wants to be remembered as one who humbly loved God, his wife Libby of 62 years, his beautiful daughters and their husbands; Donnette Potter (Doug) Robyn Petty (Jack) and his very special grandson, Austin Donald Sneed. He also loved his grands born of the heart, DJ Potter, Jenna Potter and great grand Calynn and he loved Eddie Petty his fur grand.

Don especially loved his sister in law Rhetta Jones who has served at Connie Maxwell Children's Home for over 40 years. He wishes that any memorial one feels led to make will be made to Connie Maxwell Children's Home, Greenwood, SC.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc., Mount Pleasant Chapel.

Libby, please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your husband. We were both in the SCHP Class of 1957, and I had the pleasure of being a fellow classmate. We were both assigned to Spartanburg County after graduation. He was a good Highway Patrolman who accomplished much in his career, but I never thought he received the recognition he deserved. I remember when you and Angus got married in 1958 and thought you were made for each other. May the wonderful memories you’ve made through the years help comfort you during this difficult time.

Libby and family, Jim and I are so sorry for your loss. We always remember Don as a fellow church member, a friend and a terrific fisherman. Don brought us a bucket of crappie one time after I had told him that was my favorite fish! He was special. Please know that we are praying for all of you as you grieve. Love to all.

Libby, Donnette, Robyn and families:
I am so, so sorry to hear about Don's passing. Your whole family has been a part of our family forever. I know you will miss him dearly. He was always so kind and humble and I felt like he was another dad to me growing up. I missed seeing the two of them at Anderson Mill after they moved, but I know they were so happy to be near the girls and grands. You are all in our thoughts and prayers! We love you and miss you!

Papa will be missed! I still remember the first time I had a chance to meet him when Austin and I went to Spartanburg to his grandparents. He took us to my first Chic fil an experience and treated me like I was part of the family! He was a great father and grandfather to his family! I was lucky to have met him.
