Obituaries » Donald L. Hume

Donald Lee Hume, 73, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., was called home on Monday, January 10, 2022, from lung complications.

He was born August 17, 1948, to the late Douglas and Mary Hume.

He is survived by his one true love, Diane, his wife of 33 years; two wonderful children, Mary Beth (Miles) Costello and Garrett (Taylor) Hume; his sister, Barbara Hume; his brother, Pete (Sherry) Hume; his uncle, Harold Hiner, and his perfect grandbaby Evelyn Diane Costello.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Margaret “Peggy” Jeffries.

A true American hero, Don was drafted after high school and served as part of the 173rd Airborne. After he returned, Don attended Texas Tech, where he received his Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. He moved back to Virginia shortly after graduating, and resided here for the next 40+ years, working as a corporate manager for 7-Eleven. After leaving the corporate world, he enjoyed working for his longtime friend at Goode Refrigeration until he retired at age 67. Don and Diane moved to Myrtle Beach, S.C., in 2016, built their dream home and made unforgettable memories and lifelong friends.

While we know he is in a better place now, it does not make the weight of this loss any less profound. Don, the best husband, father, friend and granddaddy, you will be missed forever. We love you.

For our Virginia family and friends, visitation will be held at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, January 15, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton, with the memorial service at 10:30 a.m. and a graveside service to follow at the Orlean Cemetery.

For our South Carolina community, there will be a celebration of life at 3 p.m. Saturday, January 22, at Belin United Methodist Church in Murrells Inlet, with reception to follow. If you are unable to attend in person, a livestream will be available at

Please consider your health risks and comfort level before attending. Masks are strongly encouraged.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (
