Donald William Updegraff, of Clarksburg, California, born on May 3, 1961 to
the late Beverly (Neves) and Donald Updegraff, passed away suddenly at
age 57 on September 24, 2018 while traveling abroad in Rome, Italy with
his wife Kathleen Updegraff. He was preceded in death by his brother,
Daniel; and sister, Julie. Donald is survived by his wife, Kathleen; son,
William; daughter, Madeline; brother, Dennis; and sisters, Judy and Donna.
Donald will be remembered as a man of faith, a devoted husband, awesome
father, extremely hard worker, a friend to many, and the proud owner of the
Clarksburg Marina, a local institution originally constructed by his father in
the 1960's. Donald loved God, his family, fishing, and life on the river.
