Donald Ray Finch was recently recognized by the Texas Funeral Directors Association for 50 years of dedication to the industry. He was cited for “his inspiring example of compassion, hard work, and innovation within his community” at the organization’s annual convention in Corpus Christi.

Finch began his work in May of 1961 and is proud of his 44-year sole ownership and operation of Finch Funeral Chapels in Nixon and surrounding areas. It has been rewarding for him to “treat families as you would want them to treat you.”

It has always been important to Don to give back to his community and his profession, which has included serving as president of the South Central FDA, his local chamber of commerce, the Nixon Lions Club, and the local hospital district. He held the position of master in his Masonic lodge and in 1975, received the honor of being named Citizen of the Year by the city of Nixon.

After graduating from Cuero High School in 1956, he earned a business degree from the University of Texas at Austin and then attended the Commonwealth College of Science, obtaining his mortician’s license.

He served in the U.S. Army and on the University of Texas Systems Chancellor’s Council; he also is an ordained Baptist deacon.

Don and his wife, Gladyne, have two sons: Troy, whose wife is Janet, and Todd, whose wife is Allison. Their grandchildren are Trevor, Taylor, Benjamin, and Claire.

Don is currently semi-retired, assisting Troy and Janet, both licensed morticians, as needed in the expanded business. Chapel locations include Nixon, La Vernia, Stockdale, Yorktown, and Runge. The joint operation of the five funeral homes is the largest funeral concern in Gonzales, Wilson, DeWitt, and Karnes counties.
