Donald E. Visnack

Sept. 22, 1937 - July 16, 2021

ST. JOHN, IN/FORMERLY OF LANSING, IL - Donald E. Visnack, beloved father, husband, papa and dear friend, resident of Lansing, IL for most of his years, passed away peacefully Friday, July 16, 2021. Don was born in East Chicago, IN on September 22, 1937. He served proudly in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was a realtor and loved to referee basketball and umpire softball with his lifelong friends until he retired. Don was a devoted Catholic and attended church regularly at St. James Church in Highland, IN. Don (Papa V) was a cherished friend to all that he met, including his cardiac rehab group of friends and friends of his sons.

Don is survived by his loving sons: Kenneth, Daniel, and his grandson Douglas Visnack. He loved his boys with all of his heart. Never missed a baseball game of his sons or grandson. A real super fan. He lived with his youngest son, Dan and grandson Doug, the last years of his life. Don was preceded in death by his loving wife Judith Visnack (Nauch), son Douglas Visnack, and parents Louis and Mary Visnack.

I am sorry to hear about your dad. You were all lucky to have him. I hope you find comfort in all your wonderful memories. Now your dad will be able to see his wife and son again. I am sure they were waiting for him at the gates of heaven with open arms.

Dear Kenneth, Daniel and Douglas, Please accept our condolences with the passing of your beloved father and grandfather. We had the honor of staying with him in his house during the baseball exchange with Ridderkerk Rowdies back in 2001. We had a wonderful time and even made a 3 day road trip with him in the wide region of Lansing. We remember his hospitality, his care, his opinions and last but not least his humor. Also in the years following we have met him several times when he was visiting Holland. We have stayed in contact with him until recently, always looking forward to his regular `humor mail´ (with a lot of wisdom). We will always remember him as a great friend and we know he loved you the most of all. We wish you all the strength you need in the coming difficult period. All the best, Piet and Anneke Kooijman Ridderkerk The Netherlands
