Alamance County Sheriff’s Office 3h · Today, we are grieving as our community lost one of the kindest and most compassionate people many of us have ever encountered. Don Kernodle was more than a co-worker, he was a friend to everyone he met. He lived a full life as a former NWA World Tag Team Champion and most recently as a retired officer of the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office. His circle was wide, and he was loved by all. Don, thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us. You will be missed.
Proved to be a great championship partner with Sgt. Slaughter. RIP Don. A true champion!
Great wrestler for the NWA will truly be missed RIP Don.

This is a sad day; I cut my teeth watching Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling and back in ’84 I recall the Koloffs turning on him. That was a huge deal for me as a young fan growing up in the Cold War South.
Sad to hear this. He and Sgt Slaughters matches with Steamboat and Youngblood are classics. A true mid Atlantic legend.
I used to cut up with him when I worked ringside security at GSO Coliseum! We were wrestling in high school the same years !
Very sad to hear. For all intents and purposes, Don was the true MVP of the Final Conflict Match in Greensboro. Thank you for the memories and you will never be forgotten. Rest Well, Don Kernodle.
