Memorial fund for Chef Don Diem

Sunday August 20, 2017 Don Diem was in a fatal car accident. Tragically Don's vehicle struck a disabled tractor trailer on Georgia 400 and Don instantly passed away.

Don had spent a wonderful weekend with his wife Georgianna and their beautiful daughter Taylor. Taylor wanted to start the new school year with a new bedroom so she and her parents enjoyed a long wonderful day full of painting and primping until everything was perfect. The next morning Don was going to treat himself to something he loved dearly-- a morning of fishing and solitude. Around noon Don called home to let Georgianna and Taylor know he was heading home to spend the rest of the day with them. Sadly Don never made it home.

All of us who knew Don knew three things 1-he was full of life and his joy was infectious 2-he loved his family and friends and he made sure that they knew it and 3- he was a talented an amazing Chef who loved food as much as he loved people.

Don was very excited to be starting a new job which was going to provide new opportunities for him and his family. Don had not yet started his new job and unfortunately did not have life insurance. The funds raised by this campaign will ensure Georgianna and Taylor's immediate needs are met as well as ensure they continue to prosper and thrive as Don would have wanted them to. A portion of these funds will be put aside for Taylors future education as well.

Thanks to all who knew and loved Don-- he touched so many lives and in his honor hopefully we can help his family during this difficult time
