Donald was the only child of Elmer and Catherine (Cole) Brown. He was born February 16, 1927 in Garretson, SD, then moved at the age of 3 with his family to their farm west of Dell Rapids where he lived and farmed until moving to town in 2013. Donald married Maxine Greenen September 11, 1948 in Vancouver, WA. They were married 67 years and have 2 children.
His small family was all important to Don as well as the land he farmed so well. Don enjoyed hunting and was a superb marksman, fishing, traveling with his family and sharing his bountiful vegetable garden.
Survivors include his wife, Maxine; daughter, Nancy Glammeier; son, Lloyd (Shannon); granddaughters, Kylene (Damon) Rudd, Alainna and Shaughnessy Brown and great-grandchildren, William and Samantha Rudd and Austin Kiggins.
Donald was preceded in death by his parents; granddaughter, Giesella Glammeier and great-grandson, Jeremiah Kiggins.
