Donald Allen Poppe was born in Madison, SD to Charles and Viola Poppe on Sept. 25, 1948.
His interests included, but not limited to, fishing, hunting, and gardening, especially when he was passing along his knowledge. Don was a jack of all trades, known for his mechanical maintenance, his time as a cop in Bruce, SD, a truck driver, and as a property manager at Sunrise Estates and Parkview Motel in Jackson, MN.
Don passed early morning June 2, 2020.
Don is preceded in death by his parents, his brother Bill, his sisters Shirley and Deanne, and grandson Ean Karl.
Don is survived by his wife Sheryl (Peterson) Poppe, daughters Patricia (Poppe) Hooper (Tom), Teressa (Poppe) Karl, and Laura (Poppe) Haegeman (David), grandchildren Ronald Karl (Samantha), Donald Haegeman, and Sandra-Jean (Haegeman) Janssen (Jesse) and many other close family and friends.
Don’s last wishes were that he didn’t have a service, that all he wanted was for everyone to raise a glass in his memory and smile. He also wanted to say one last time: Vote Trump 2020!
