Xavier Has Lost a Beloved Member of Our Community

January 27, 2023

Xavier has lost a beloved member of our community. 

Donald Ketchum who served as Xavier’s Sports Media Specialist since July 2014 passed away suddenly on January 25. Don leaves his wife, Carol, and children, Alison Pattison and Adam Henry.

For many years, Don was a sports journalist at the Arizona Republic and a staff writer at AZPreps365. His unique proficiency with words put the reader right in the midst of whatever game or sports he covered.

Don took a special interest in Xavier’s sports teams. He was always a friendly face at games cheering on our Gators and providing a written chronicle of plays.

We will miss him greatly. Please join us in praying for his family at this time of sorrow. 

More information about services will be forthcoming.
