Donald E. Westcott Jr., age 68, of Rockville, passed away in his home Wednesday, Aug.5, 2020. He was born Feb. 6, 1952, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Donald E. Westcott Sr. and Betty Jean (Gordon) Westcott.
Donald’s mother was very important to him. He had many friends, who often called him Elvis because his hair was slicked back like Elvis Presley. He owned a bar called the Mainliner, which he had bought from his father. He also worked on the railroad for over 30 years.
Later in his life, Donald met Christina. She was very short, and he was very tall, but they fit together for 31 years. As they grew old, they found happiness and enjoyed fishing, motorcycling and relaxing.
Donald would occasionally have a few Pepsi and Bacardi’s and go gambling at the bar. If he was winning he would go to the river boats to gamble some more.
He enjoyed collecting watches and pocket watches and enjoyed going to cigar clubs and festivals. He was a member of the Eagles for over 30 years and was a lifetime member of Hog Bikes.
He was stubborn and bullheaded. Things had to be his way or no way at all. He insisted that his son, Donald Westcott III, name his son, Donald Westcott IV.
Christina liked to introduce him as her “honest asshole.” He had a dry sense of humor and always wanted things done right even if it took him a lot longer. He liked to tell people that they were young and had their whole life in front of them.
Donald is survived by his wife, Christina; son, Donald Westcott, III; daughter, Lorraine; four grandchildren – Donald IV, Andrew, Abigail, and Malcolm; and two great-grandchildren.
Disposition was by inurnment under the direction of Bland-Hackleman Funeral Home.
