Obituary of Donnie "Cub" Hargett Sr.
Donnie “Cub” Hargett Sr., 67, of Windsor, Missouri, died early Tuesday morning, May 25, 2021, at his home in Windsor. He was born July 27, 1953, at the hospital in Lebanon, Mo., the son of Thomas Forbis Hargett and Ida Josephine (Hankins) Hargett. As a young man, he worked for the railroad for 3 years and then began laying underground phones lines. He worked putting up drywall for 12 years on military bases across the United States. He built miles of fence over his lifetime. He was baptized at the Brandon United Methodist Church and received recognition for faithful attendance, not missing a Sunday for three years. Although he enjoyed watching Monday night wrestling, Perry Mason mysteries, and Westerns, nothing compared to watching his grandsons play football. He loved feeding the neighborhood dogs and birds and surprised his family with the fact that he enjoyed listing to Classical music during his road travels. Morning time was special to Cub and coffee with his nephew was a great way to start the day. Survivors include his soul mate Tammy Kukes of the home; a son, Jamie Hargett, Beaver City, Nebraska; 2 daughters, LaShawn White (Robert), Windsor, Mo., and Cubette Hargett (Josh Wheeler), Windsor, Mo.; a step-son, Richard Dungan, Kingsville, Mo.; a step-daughter, Misten Dungan of the home; 13 grandchildren; 2 sisters, Genie Willhite (Lloyd), Windsor, Mo., and Janie Sidwell, Garden City, Mo.; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by 4 brothers, Billie Hankins, Tommie Hargett, Lonnie Hargett, Johnnie Hargett and a sister, Jessie McNeil. Memorial services will be 4:00 p.m., Saturday, June 5, 2021, at the Hadley Funeral Home, Windsor. The family will receive friends before the service from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the funeral home. Burial will be at a later date in the Cable Ridge Cemetery, Climax Springs, Mo. Following the service, the community is invited to celebrate Cub’s life with the family at the Farrington Park, Windsor. The family suggests contributions to Operation Smile in care of the funeral home.
