Don married Betty Nelson in March of 1957. Don and Betty lived on a farm in Wabasha, MN, for most of their married years. Together they raised five daughters and hundreds of sheep/lambs. Don enjoyed everything about “country living”. Anyone who knew Don, knew of his love for hunting, fishing, and the “whole outdoors”. His trophy room was one of his prized possessions. Don was a member of Pepin Hill Farmers Club for many years, and loved to play cards. It was even better if he could win the game. He thoroughly enjoyed his grandchildren and great grandchildren. We will always remember his art for “telling stories”, humored by his version.
Many people will remember Don as their trusted insurance agent. He owned his own business as an independent insurance agent for 40 years. He was cherished by his customers, some of whom became close friends.
