Don McBrayer

August 15, 1946 — January 20, 2024


Hugh “Don” McBrayer II, age 77, of Mooresboro, passed away Saturday, January 20, 2024, at Atrium Health-Cleveland in Shelby.

Don was born on Thursday, August 15, 1946, in Rutherford County to the late Hugh Donald McBrayer I and Norma Bailey McBrayer. Don graduated from NC State University. He enjoyed watching his son, Brad and his grandsons dirt track race. Don liked to have fun and be the one to get the last joke. He was also an avid sports fan. Don was a member of Prospect Baptist Church. If Don had lived until February 14, 2024, he and Sandra would have been married sixty years. Don and his sister Melanie had a special saying they always used and that was “my bestest sister and my bestest brother.” He was the best daddy in the world, and he will be missed.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Brad McBrayer,

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of sixty years, Sandra McBrayer; his children, Lavon McBrayer, Brian McBrayer (Tonya), and Lisa Scruggs (Roman); daughter-in-law, Mandy McBrayer; grandchildren, Austin Scruggs (Eliza), Blake Scruggs (Kaylea), Seth McBrayer (Jordan),Ashley Henson (Curtis), Jerin McBrayer and fiancé Carolina Allen, Sadie McBrayer (Sheldon Roach), Maysan McBrayer; and one great grandchild, Huxlee Scruggs, and a host of nieces and nephews.
