Donald was born on January 16th, 1944, and joined his ancestors on October 6th, 2023, surrounded by his beloved family.
Don was a cowboy, a husband, a father, a farmer, and a papa. Being a papa is what he loved the most.
Don is survived by his wife of fifty-seven years, Kathleen Marcus, two daughters, Jamie Marcus, and Kimberly Marcus, five grandchildren, Jacob Marcus, Kathleen Weber, Justine Clason, Danielle Marcus, and Jenna Schwarz, eight great grandchildren, two brothers, three sisters, and several nieces and nephews.
Don retired from the Puyallup School District, where he received the Golden Acorn Award. After a few years of retirement, Don decided to go back to work on a part-time basis at the Pierce County Parks Department, where the guys he worked with told him to slow down because he was making the rest of them look bad.
Don loved working on his farm, camping, and spending time with his family. Don will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
