Donald Gene Pantle, age 92, passed away on February 2, 2024, joining his beloved wife, Eula, in Heaven after four long years of being without her. Don was born and raised in Ordway, Colorado, and it was there that he met Eula (Wodell). They were married in 1952 and spent a devoted 67 years together until her death in January 2020. They lived in Ordway through the birth of their first child, Davie “David” Eugene. When Davie was stricken with, and eventually passed away from leukemia at the age of 2, they moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Don was employed by the City of Colorado Springs from 1957 until his retirement in the 90’s.

Their children, Diane and Richard, were born in 1959 and 1961. They were active members of Village Christian Church as their children grew up. Don and Eula joined Village Seven Presbyterian Church in the mid 80’s, where Don was an usher and a deacon. Don had an incredible love for people and an unwavering sense of humor that lasted until the very end.

Don is survived by his daughter, Diane (Mike) Cahill; son, Richard (Susan) Pantle; grandchildren: David (Jessah), Sarah (Chip), Hannah (Jon), Abigail (Gabe); three great-grandchildren; and sisters: Darlene Denbo and DeVonne Juister. He was preceded in death by his wife, Eula; 2-year-old son, Davie; and brother, Duane.

A Memorial Service will be held at 10:30AM, on Friday, February 16 at Village Seven Presbyterian Church, 4040 Nonchalant Circle S., Colorado Springs, Colorado, 80917. In lieu of flowers please consider contributing to Village Seven Presbyterian’s Deacons Fund.

This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. Don, Eula, Diane, Richard and Mrs. Wodell were dear friends of Lea and me when we pastored in Village Christian Church and afterwards. I stayed with Don and Eula during an anniversary service of Villiae Christian Church. Their lives were filled with Christian Faith and compassionate service to others.
