Donald Troy Feibel was truly one of a kind.

Born Jan. 9, 1936, in Columbus, he was a loyal son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend. Those lucky enough to have to have met him found themselves forever changed by his light.

A resident of Columbus his entire life, Don attended Bexley City Schools, Columbus Academy and The Ohio State University. He was a proud supporter of his alma maters, serving on many boards throughout his lifetime.

Don discovered his penchant for pranks and mischief at an early age. Whether with his siblings or friends, he was always available for a bit of fun or to lend an ear.

Highly respected in his career in real estate, he valued integrity above all else. Don loved the rush of negotiating a deal that left both sides happy. More than the job itself, the relationships and friendships he developed meant the world to him. More than anything, he relished being with his family and friends. Don was a devoted family man. A beloved son, a steadfast brother, a loving husband, an unrivaled father, and a joyful Popi, who made sure all around him felt important. He valued creating memories far more than material things. Whether on family trips to Hilton Head and Michigan or Halloween Family Nights, his sense of humor and his brilliant mind were unparalleled.

A chef and a tech wizard alike, he never met a gadget he wasn’t excited to try. From Popovers and Popi-cakes to the best ever french toast and chicken crepes, Don was a magician in the kitchen.

While the world for all who knew and loved him is infinitely more dim, the trail he blazed will never be erased.

Don is preceded in death by parents, Pearl and Troy Feibel and brother, James Feibel. He is survived by the loves of his life - his wife Ronni; siblings, Barbara and Ron Robins and Babette FeiDonald Troy Feibel was truly one of a kind.
