Don “Moose” owned and operated his own excavating company and enjoyed “playing in the dirt”. He was a member of the Foosland Sportsman’s Club and enjoyed camping, boating, fishing in Northern Wisconsin for Muskie and loved being outdoors. He however was the happiest and proudest when he was attending his grandchildren’s sporting events football, wrestling, baseball, track, soccer and cheerleading. No matter the distance he was there. He was a kind and caring man and will be missed by many.
