  • "My name is Paul Lindahl and I graduated from Ondossagon High School with Don in 1964. Sorry to hear that Don has passed away. Don and I were classmates and I knew his parents and sister as well. He is a few days older than me as we shared April birthdays, my birthday is 19 April. I noticed his picture in military uniform although not sure when he served. I was drafted when I graduated from University of Wisconsin, in 1968, during buildup of troops needed during Vietnam Conflict. Again, condolences to your family in this very difficult time. Paul Lindahl"

  • "I am also a former high school classmate of Don's. We were in the same grade. I don't believe I knew his father, but knew his mother. We lived about 7 miles from their farm on US Highway 2. We cut hay on their farm and baled and hauled it to our farm. When we were sophomores in high school my father hired Don as our "hired hand" for one summer. (I was an only child and my father needed some extra help from a male.) Don and I became boyfriend and girlfriend for a very short time, even taking me for a boat ride on a lake somewhere south of Mason I think. He ended up finding a different girlfriend who lived closer to their farm. We lost contact after graduation but I think he attended one of our class reunions. My condolences to your family. At our age, each day is a gift and hopefully can be enjoyed with a good quality of life. Blessings to each of you. "
