Donald Lee Alumbaugh, age 66, of Mound City, Kan., passed away at his home on Monday, July 9, 2018. Don was born on Oct. 17, 1951, the son of Elmer and Reva Juanita Fleming Alumbaugh at Hutchinson, Kan. 

Don was retired, but had worked at Niece Products where he designed and sold water tanks that were used in mining and construction. He had great hands-on skills; you could say he was a jack of all trades.

He loved attending street rod shows and riding dune buggies in his younger days with his daughter, but his love and passion was rebuilding street rods. Don was a member of the First Baptist Church in Mound City. 

He married Mary Bowden, and to this union a daughter Tina was born. 

He later married Kathy Bevier on Sept. 30, 1995, at Lake of the Forest in Bonner Springs, Kan. 

He was preceded in death by his parents; and a sister, Barbara Meadows. 

He is survived by his wife Kathy; daughter Tina Smith and husband Rod, Gardner, Kan.; stepson Brian Gilhousen and wife Cayce, Kansas City, Mo.; a brother, Bill Alumbaugh and wife Shirley, Hutchinson; a sister, Melinda Huff, Wellsville, Kan.; three grandchildren, Quentin, Erin and Ashley; and three great grandchildren, Macen, Kasen and Bryden.

Memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, July 12, at the First Baptist Church, Mound City. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to service time Thursday, July 12, at the church. Burial will be at the Woodland Cemetery. 

The family suggests contributions to First Baptist Church, Mound City, and may be sent in c/o Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, P.O. Box J, Mound City, KS 66056. Arrangements: Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, Mound City.
