Donald Deagle was the husband of Ruby Deagle and uncle of the spoiled Douglas Deagle. He died somewhere prior to the events shown in Gremlins and it is unknown what the reason of his death was. What little background is known of him is from a brief radio news report of Mrs. Deagle's death at the hands of the gremlins, noting that Donald Deagle was a convicted stock swindler, and can be inferred that due to his death, there was insufficient evidence to reclaim the stolen money from his widow.

Although he wasn't seen personally in the film, a large framed photo of him could be seen hanging in the Deagle Real Estate where Ruby was living up until her death in the gremlin incident that plagued the town.
