Don and Della lived in Sauk Centre, Duluth and St. Cloud. They moved to their lake home in St. Anna when Don retired, and they lived there for 25 years, before moving back to St. Cloud in 2016.

He was a member of the Knights of Columbus 3628 of Albany, the Eagles Aerie 622 in St. Cloud and the Holdingford Men’s Prayer Group. Don worked for Pan O Gold Bakery for 25 years and retired from Deli Express after 20 years.

Don lived an abundant and joyful life of 90 years, including an active retirement playing cards, bowling, volunteering at church, taking care of their lake home and working several days each week at Precision Motorsports in St. Joseph. He was a master of dominos, croquet and cribbage. His loving and joyful spirit was known to many, and his laugh was infectious, hearty and stood out in any crowd.
