Donald Emanuel Skabelund

April 25, 1929 - January 7, 2018



Donald Emanuel Skabelund, born in Logan, UT, who resided for many years in Albuquerque, NM, passed away in Lawrence, KS.

Donald Emanuel Skabelund, 88, died after a long decline caused by Alzheimer's disease. "Don" was predeceased by his parents, Emanuel and Evelyn (nee Olson) Skabelund; and brothers, Dean and Elmer. He leaves to mourn his wife, Dana (nee Tucker) Skabelund; daughters, Alyson Von Feldt (Douglas Von Feldt) and Anhara Disko; and grandchildren, Jacob Von Feldt, Sophia Von Feldt, Meredith Von Feldt, Aidan Von Feldt, and Ashtyn Webb.

His family knew him as a kind and selfless man. He was a seeker of knowledge - a UNM professor of physics and history. He was fascinated by all things and surrounded by books. He was a lover of animals, a hiker, a gardener, and a devout man of faith. He entertained with his jolly wit.

He will be beloved forever and deeply missed.
