Donald Wright Hixson, Sr., 86, passed away November 13, 2020.

Don was well known in the Chattanooga community as the man to see for your vehicle registration, working tirelessly in the Tag and Title Office at the downtown

courthouse for 49 years. Don came from a family of public servants, following in the footsteps of his father, Jack D. Hixson, who was the Hamilton County Court Clerk for 22 years from 1938 to 1960. Don started working alongside his father at the courthouse in 1953 and retired in 1999. He then continued to help out in the office part-time, finally hanging up his hat after 49 total years. At this time, he was noted as the longest serving employee of Hamilton County. It seemed that everyone in town knew Don from his long-standing position with the County Court Clerk's office, and you would be hard pressed to find anyone who had anything but kind words to say about him. Don was a family man who was known for his loving heart and gentle demeanor.

Don was a graduate of Chattanooga High School and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Although Don did not travel extensively himself, he was fascinated with travel documentaries and loved to hear the details of others' travels. He was a history buff and could tell you anything you ever wanted to know about world history. He was passionate about automobiles, knowing the makes and models of all cars through the decades immediately upon sight. He will be remembered as a man who always cared for and took care of others.

Donald was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Emma Jewel Hixson, his brothers Jack D. Hixson, Jr., Dr. Gordon Hixson, George Hixson, his sister, Judee Hixson Duckett, and his wife, Nancy Hixson.

Donald is survived by his four children: Donald Hixson, Jr. (Joyce), Janet Jolley, Mark Hixson (Laura), and Kristy McManus, as well as a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Due to the pandemic, the family will not be holding visitation.

A graveside service for immediate family will be held Sunday afternoon at the family cemetery.

Arrangements are by Hamilton Funeral Home & Cremation Services 4506 Hixson Pike, Hixson (423)531-3975.
