Don W. Strauch Jr. Obituary
Strauch, Don W. Jr.
passed away January 11, 2016, in Scottsdale, AZ. His adventurous life began at age 4, when he decided to explore the world on his trike, necessitating his parents call the police to locate him. He and his beloved wife of 65 years, Chris, continued the adventure, traveling all over the world during their marriage. Don was a highly respected, beloved and effective public servant, and he held many political and appointed offices serving Mesa and the state: P and Z Board, city council and mayor, all in Mesa; state representative, and CAWCD Board. He started the Sister City movement in Mesa. He also sat on the boards of many non-profits, usually as the treasurer. As a self-described 'bean counter,' he always tried to leave them in better financial shape than he found them. He is survived by his wife, Chris, daughter Christy; nephews Pat, Mike, and nieces Rory, Joanie and Debbie. His memorial service will be Jan 24th at 2pm, at the Mesa Country Club. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local public library, or better yet, run for office.
