Donald (Don) Weissman


Donald (Don) Weissman, ageless, left this earth on December 19, 2018, after a short hospital stay in McAllen, Texas, but he lives on in our memories and the life we were privileged to share with him for more than 20 years.
To describe him reads like a Personal Ad for a dating site: Loves his family, treats everyone with respect, enjoys golfing, fishing or just riding around in his pontoon, playing cards, sitting around a campfire, dancing.
He will be missed by Carole Austing, Scott and Sandy Austing (Spencer, Dominic, Hunter), Stacey and Nate Austing-Jacobson (Charlotte, Nicholas), Stephanie Austing (Morgan ((Chase)), Drew, Paige, and Lauren Kingston), Suzanne and Brad Kobilka (Anna, Julia, Allison), and Stuart Austing. His great smile and twinkly, mischievous eyes, and zest for life made him many friends over his 83 years on this earth. From his days growing up in Mandan, ND, then with his service in the Air Force, onto his long career with Honeywell, his retirement years spent in Pine City, and finally, moving to St. Cloud and Grey Eagle, MN, and spending winters in San Juan, TX for many years, he added friends who continue to miss him. We love you, Don.
He is also survived by his former wife, Kathy Weissman, daughters, Lori O’Dowd and Sheree Hammond, and grandchildren, great-grandchildren, two brothers and nieces and nephews.
Services for Don will be January 12, 2019 at The Church of St. Paul, 1740 Bunker Lake Blvd. NE., Ham Lake, MN. Vis. 10:00 Mass 11:00 Memorials to St. Jude’s Hosp. or Pine City Lions Club.
