Age 80 of Brooklyn Park passed away of natural causes June 9, 2020. Don was born in Jud, ND and was the last child born to Albert and Mathillda.

He was a wonderful father, hard worker and a great provider. Don started as a railroad worker in North Dakota and later worked at Northland Foremost for many years. As kids, we well remember the ice cream-stocked freezer. As a boy and throughout his life he loved to read novels and faithfully read the newspaper front to back everyday. He leaves behind his son, David Elhard, his wife Michelle, and only grandchildren Annalise, Jacob and Ian Elhard. He also leaves behind his daughter Kathryn. He was preceded in death by daughters Terena and Lara and is survived by siblings Wanda, Della, and Morris. A private Remembrance will be held at a later date. Donny was loved deeply and will be sadly missed. We remember his laugh, sense of humor, and love best of all! (Published in the Star Tribune on June 21, 2020)
