William F. (Bill) Donnett, 75, of LaGrange, went to be with the Lord on Friday, Sept. 24, 2021, with Carol, his loving wife of 53 years at his side.

Bill was born in Newark, Ohio, on Nov. 25, 1945, to the late Stuart and Helen Donnett. He and Carol married in July 1968. Bill was a loving family man whose grandchildren were the light of his life. A graduate of Newark High School, Bill began his career working for Owens-Corning Fiberglas. 

He later attended COTC, and retired from Knauf Insulation as the Director of Plant Operations in 2009. His retirement allowed him to more fully enjoy his roles as a husband, father, grandfather, and loyal Buckeye fan.

In addition to his parents, Bill was preceded in death by his grandson Hayden Donnett, his father-in-law Charlie Scaffide, his mother-in-law Meriam Scaffide, and his brother-in-law Jake Harlow.

He is survived by his wife Carol (Scaffide), his children and their spouses, Traci (Randy) Pevehouse and Matt (Amber) Donnett; his grandchildren, Jake Donnett, Haley (Bradley) Bauer, and Lexie Pevehouse; a great-grandson on the way; his brother David (Susan) Donnett; his in-laws, Sandy (Doug) Harlow-Eckel, Charlie Scaffide, Brenda (Dick) Brown, Paul Scaffide, Rita (Ron) Pastorius, Gary (Joyce) Scaffide, Annette (Joe) Hans, and Leslie Scaffide; many nieces, nephews, and friends.
