DENMARK, Wis. — Donald Robert Smith, 84, of Denmark passed away Thursday, March 8, 2018.
Don was born near Chippewa Falls, to Bernard and Ann (Brown) Smith.
Don was an avid fisherman and although his grandsons would say he had a wild cast, he would easily out fish anyone with a simple hook and worm. His favorite place to be in life was in his boat on Pine Lake in Hiles, Wis. He appreciated a good set of suspenders, growing his own vegetables, eating at his favorite diners, and he would shoot the breeze with anyone who would listen.
He is survived by his son, Robert (Rebecca) Smith; and two grandsons, Hunter and Rylan Smith of Marengo, Ill.
Don was preceded in death by his parents; and five siblings.
Visitation will be held at noon Saturday, March 17, at Zion Lutheran Church in Marengo, Ill. (412 Jackson St.) followed by a memorial service at 1 p.m. Online condolences may be expressed at www.cotterfuneralhome.com.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Brown County-Denmark Area Services, 300 S. Adams St., Green Bay, Wis. 54301.
