Donald A. Prestegard, 71, passed away on Friday, October 22, 2021.
He was preceded in death by parents Donald M. and Delores, brother Bradley, and life-long friend Steve Battin.
He is survived by wife Terri, daughter Niki (Jesse), grandchild Oliver, brothers Les (Sue) and Russ (Kathy), as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.
He dutifully served in the U.S. Army infantry in South Korea and was honorably discharged. Don was a lifelong resident of Bloomington, MN until he retired to Austin, TX when he gained the coveted and beloved title of Grandpa. He was laid-back and funny and the easiest guy ever to strike up a conversation with, unless you tried to date his daughter. The only thing he loved more than getting up at dawn to swing a golf club, or a Vikings win, was his grandkid Oliver, who was his greatest joy and the light of his life for the last 13 years. Donnie will be profoundly missed by all, including the many friends he made throughout the years.
Burial and celebration of life information will be forthcoming.
