Donald A. ECKMAN

Age 76 Of North St. Paul/Oakdale Called to the Lord suddenly on April 21, 2013. Don was a US Army veteran and retired structural steel draftsman for the Lucas Company. After retirement, he remained interested in Minnesota highway projects and bridges, and had many friends doing road work in the state. Highway projects through North St. Paul were his hobby, and he kept in frequent contact with many city employees. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Charles and Walter. A loving brother and uncle, he is survived by his sister, Doris (Ken) Skoog; sister-in-law, Evelyn Eckman; and numerous nieces and nephews. Before her death, Don also cared for his mother, Blanche, who survived his father, Carl, a farmer and churchman. A devoted volunteer and family helper, Don will be greatly missed by all.
