Donald Dargan Obituary

Mr. Donald Dargan of Haddock, GA, formerly of Sparta, GA, transitioned to his final rest on Thursday, March 14, 2024.  Public Viewing is Monday, March 18, 2024, 3:00pm – closing. The Celebration of Life is Tuesday, March 19, 2024, 11:00am, Holsey Memorial CME Church, Sparta, GA.  

Donald, a bright light extinguished too soon, passed away on March 14, 2024. His departure leaves an enduring void in our hearts and a legacy that will forever echo through the corridors of time.

Born June 3, 1972, Donald was a beacon of kindness, curiosity, and unwavering determination. His infectious smile and prankster ways could light up the darkest room, and his empathy and kindness knew no bounds. Whether he was tutoring, repairing cars, or catching fish, Donald radiated warmth and compassion.

He joined the Hickory Grove Missionary Baptist Church at an early age and later moved his membership to Holsey Memorial C.M.E. Church where he served as leader of the Ministry to Men initiative.

Donald pursued his education and work with eagerness. He was a graduate of the Hancock Central High School class of 1990. He continued his education by obtaining his Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and a Master’s in Education from American Intercontinental University in Atlanta, GA. He spent 15 years serving as an officer at the Bill Ireland Youth Detention Center in Milledgeville, GA. He was a Hancock County Coroner as well as an Assistant Magistrate Court Judge. He served as an adult education instructor at Oconee Fall Line Technical College, worked for Hancock County Board of Education as a classroom teacher and assistant and he spent his last days serving others at the Walmart Automotive Center.

His love for nature was unmistakable—whether he was hunting through the woods or fishing in the area lakes, Donald took pleasure in the beauty of the natural world. He would spend hours tending to his chickens, ducks, dogs and even lots of time feeding and watching deer. Donald had a thrill-seeking need for speed. He spent many days under the shade tree with his guys talking, laughing, cooking, and tapping on race cars. You could feel how much he loved racing from the intensity of his words. The wins and the losses represented a chapter in his extraordinary journey. He believed that racing was not just about the fancy cars—it was about the brotherhood, the friendships, the speed, and the thrill that brought them all together.

Anyone that knew Donald knows that his biggest love was fishing. He did not mind treading the waters of Lake Sinclair during the mornings, noonday, or nights. After a day on the water, you could be sure that he did not come back to shore empty handed. He would often be seen with fish so big, it was almost unimaginable.

Donald was a loyal friend, a confidante who listened without judgment. His gatherings were legendary — filled with laughter, food, and impromptu jokes. He cherished the bonds he made, and his friends became his family.

Donald will meet loved ones who have gone on before him. His father Rev. Cleveland B. Dargan and brother Kenneth R. Dargan.

Donald will continue to be loved by many including his children Donovan and Madison Dargan, his mother Dr. Rebecca W. Dargan, sisters Jada Dargan Baugh, Dr. Fanicia (Harold) Rogers, and brother Marcus (Devvine) Morris. Nephews Demario (Tamika), Anthony, Jahshawun (Shanterrica), Seth Jr., and Zadien. His nieces Twoi (Derrick), Britney (Melvin), Whitney (Corey), Sophial, Charity (Cordias), uncles, aunts, and a host of other family members. He will be greatly missed by his devoted friend Ms. Jacquelyn Spikes (Ms. Jackie), Aminisha, Jada, and his special heartstring Miss Kenzlei Rose Hunt, Markedra, Nikari, Kaisyn, his buddies

Fredrick, Stacy, Tony, Keith, Titus, Mont, Cornelius, Ms. Jessie, many others that he met along the way and the HCHS Class of 1990.
