Biography

  • Death: He died on July 7, 2011, at age 62.
  • Burial: He was buried in Nicolet Memorial Gardens, Green Bay, Wisconsin.

He was born in Appleton, Wis. on July 28, 1948, to the late Elmer and Irene (Pitsch) Putnam. Both of Don's parents passed away by the time he was 15 years old. Don then lived with his sister and brother-in-law, Sherry and Jim (Mike) Peeters. In 1966, he graduated from Green Bay East High School.

    Don served in the U.S. Army from 1968 until his honorable discharge as a Staff Sgt E-6 in 1974. He served in the Vietnam War, with the 9th Infantry Division. He was awarded numerous medals including the Combat Infantryman Badge.

Don retired in 2009, from a 37 year career in auto sales throughout the Green Bay and Fox Valley area.

    In 2000, Don met the love of his life, Kathleen Ashley and her family became his. He enjoyed sharing grand-parenting with Kathy.
