The 25th Annual Brunson Memorial Golf Tournament is being played in memory of Donald Glenn Breazeale, Sr. Don loved his family with an unmatched warmth, loved to laugh as often as possible, and, above all, loved the Lord. Don served as a deacon and then as a ruling elder at First Presbyterian Church of Jackson. As a founding member of KTB Wealth Partners, Don enjoyed a long career in financial planning. Don also loved the game that we play in his memory and always enjoyed a round no matter his score. Wherever he went, whether it was to play a round of golf at the Country Club or to his favorite spot at The Mayflower, Don never met a stranger. After being diagnosed with neuroendocrine carcinoma, Don continued to live a life of service and faith. Throughout his hard-fought battle with cancer, Don’s infectious smile and laughter never faltered. The American Cancer Society is proud to honor this amazing man on the 25th anniversary of the Brunson Memorial.
