On August 17, 1968 he married Jane Gutknecht at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Menomonie. He was a man of strong faith. Even in times of struggle, he would turn to his Lord and savior in prayer. Donald worked the family farm his entire life with passion; a passion for growing and sowing his crops. He was a very social person. He appreciated having conversations to discuss farming and looking at business practices that would make for success. His strong work ethic, combined with patience and compassion was passed onto his children and grandchildren.
