Edina and Longville

Passed away peacefully in the arms of his loving wife, Diane on December 15, 2013.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Mary; brother-in-law, Marvin Stang. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sister, Adella Stang; brother, William (Patricia); many nephews, nieces, other in-laws and friends. Don earned both Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at Saint Cloud State University. He also earned a Ph.D in Special Education Administration at the University of Iowa. Don lived life everyday with joy and exuberance and was magic in his interactions with people. As a husband he gave love, devotion and caring daily without exception. Don made a positive difference for people each day of his life, not only in his professional leadership and innovations in Minnesota and various parts of the country, but in all of his interactions with others. A Celebration of Life in Don's honor is planned for a future date. Everlasting gratitude to the wonderful people of the NC Little Memorial Hospice in Edina.
