Donald Ross Eutenier


1928 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
Donald Ross Eutenier Born in Oakland, CA, 1928, Donald Ross Eutenier passed from his Kelseyville home on August 1, 2018. He had moved here with his parents, Henry William Eutenier and Robina Munro Eutenier in 1941; and always main-tained that this was his destined home. He grew up in the country paradise of Lake County, on his parents' fruit orch-ard, which he later operated as pri-marily a pear orchard. He loved the challenge of growing good crops and also was an avid hunter and fisherman. Don attended Kelseyville High School, class of 1946, and a short time at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, until his father's health forced him home to take over the family ranch. With his marriage to Barbara Beeman and the arrival of his four children in the 1950s, and the increasing size and complexity of his farming business, Don never lost touch with his maternal Scottish and paternal German heritage and pride. Active in the community, Don served on the school board and was a president of the Kelseyville Lions Club, long time member and president of the Farm Bureau, on the board of directors of Kelseyville Packing and Lake County Vintners, a founding member and director of the Lake County Winegrape Commission. He was deemed a Life Member of the Konocti Rod and Gun Club as well as the National Rifle Association. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife, Barbara, a sister, Maxine Miller, grandson, Michael, and stepson, Eric Beck. His survivors include his wife of 30 years, Margaret; sister, Arlene Johnson; his sons, Henry (Kristine) and Ross of Kelseyville, and Mark (PaulAnn) of San Jose; daughter, Lynn Fraser (Bruce) of Lakeport; granddaughters, Bridget Potter (Alan) of Phoenix, AZ, and Erin Wilson (Justin) of Lincoln CA; step children, James Beck and Lesa Turner (Willy); six step grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Plus numerous beloved cousins, nieces and nephews. A celebration of Don's life will be held in Kelseyville, at the American Legion Hall on Saturday, September 22, at 1 p.m. Memorial contributions to or Kelseyville FFA or 4H are welcome.
