Don was a loving and caring husband and father to his wife and children. He enjoyed life. Don loved spending time in Door County, dining at his favorite restaurants, and having his Dove Ice Cream bar every night. He was a "car guy" but also received great pleasure cruising the waters in his boat "Big Red". Don will be greatly missed by family and friends.
Don's family wishes to extend a special thank you to St. Mary's Home at Felician Village and the Aurora Visiting Nurses Association for their compassionate care shown to Don. They would especially like to thank Marilyn Anklam, who has been a wonderful friend to Don for over ten years.
