Donald Charles Kuehn, 74, of Tavares, Florida, was born on June 17, 1945, in Los Angeles, the son of Robert Jasper Kuehn and Kathleen Belle January Kuehn.

The family moved back to his father’s hometown of Natchez, in September of 1945.

Donald was a 1964 graduate of Natchez-Adams County High School. After being accepted to Harvard University, he decided to stay close to home.  Donald graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in August of 1969, with a degree in business administration. He married Charlotte Lucile Roberts on April 5, 1970, at the First Presbyterian Church in Brookhaven.  After teaching math and working in real estate, he settled on banking at Baton Rouge Bank in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1979.  He graduated from The School of Banking of the South at Louisiana State University in June 1985.  Donald moved to Ruston, Louisiana, in 1986 after accepting a position as vice president managing commercial services at Ruston State Bank. He moved back to Baton Rouge in 1996 and worked in commercial lending at Deposit Guaranty National Bank in Gonzalez, Louisiana.  In 2001, he moved to Central Florida where he managed the lending department at Florida Choice Bank in Mount Dora, Florida.  Donald retired from the banking industry in 2012 after distinguishing himself as a well-respected senior vice president specializing in commercial lending at Trustmark National Bank in Columbus, Mississippi.

Donald was preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Kathleen; his wife, Charlotte; one brother, Robert Jasper “Bobby” Kuehn Jr.; his identical twin, Richard Franklin “Dick” Kuehn Sr.; and one sister, Karen Jo Kuehn Clements.
