September 16, 1962 - June 28, 2020
Donald Alan Karn, 57 of Hastings, a man who loved deeply in his own way, died unexpectedly June 27, 2020. Born in Lansing, Michigan on September 16, 1962 to Wayne and Anna Mae (Jansen) Karn, Don grew up in Charlotte and graduated from Charlotte High School in 1980. He was a man that always completed what he started, and was always there for his kids. An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting deer (which gave him meat for his famous venison jerky) and fishing for salmon on Lake Michigan. He was also a handyman, learning as early as his junior high school days that he could fix anything. Don also enjoyed camping excursions with his family as he was growing up, NASCAR races with his kids, cooking and baking, and his church, Nashville Baptist. Don is survived by his daughter, Lindsay (Bradley) Horton; sons, Nathan Karn, Nicholas Karn, and Matthew Karn; parents, Wayne and Anna Mae Karn; siblings, Ken (Tammy) Karn, Jerry (Julia) Karn, Ryan (Lana) Karn; and his former wife, Melissa Karn. He was predeceased by his grandparents, George and Caroline Karn, and Peter and Wilma Jansen. Friends are encouraged to support Don’s family.
