He loved bowling, gardening and the family vacation up north to Crooked Lake. He moved to Crandon to enjoy retirement where he fished Lake Lucerne and hunted with his sons. He loved to watch his grandchildren as they created memories of Lake Lucerne.

    Don was proud to serve his country and was active with the American Legion in Wrightstown and Crandon, Lion's Club in Crandon and the Knights of Columbus. He volunteered every year to help with the Crandon Brush Runs and was always available when the Veterans sponsored a charity.
