Nov. 4, 1934 – Aug . 14, 2016
Don is survived by his wife of 60 years Maria, children Garey (Deb), Sharon (Randy), Rick (Teri), and Lori as well as 7 grand and 8 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his mother-in-law Nettie, one older sister Marion (Bill), his twin sister Dorothy and their families.
Don was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing with his family and friends. He was a successful hinter with both a rifle and bow and arrow. Don enjoyed his 16 1/2 years of retirement and at almost 82 years old he still liked going to the A&W to meet with friends for coffee.
On the July long weekend 2016 he was able to attend a family gathering with his wife, children, grand and great-grandchildren. Don had a good life and was at peace until the end. He was loved by many and will be missed by all.
Special thanks to Dr. Tan, the nurses at the Golden Hospital, and the ambulance attendants.
He is our hero and will be remembered always.
