(Tuesday - December 08, 2020) - Donald "Don" E. Krall, age 83, of Kingsford, passed away on Saturday, December 5, at Bellin Memorial Hospital in Green Bay.

Don was born August 5, 1937, in Antigo, Wisconsin, son of the late Harry and Alice (Swenson) Krall. He attended Antigo schools, graduating in 1955. He started his college days at the University of Miami, Florida, and finished at Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, graduating in 1963. Don proudly served as a Corporal in the United States Army. He was proud to be a military policeman for three years, serving in Fort Meyer in Arlington, Virginia. Don received the good conduct medal before he was honorably discharged. He was inducted into the Northland and Antigo Athletics Hall of Fame.

Don married his wife and best friend, Kay Thompson, on June 21, 1969, in Neenah, Wisconsin. He spent his working life teaching and coaching in various Southern Wisconsin school systems and also worked in industry at Harley Davidson Motor Company and Kohls. Don retired in 1995 from teaching in the Milwaukee Public Schools. He and Kay retired to the family property in Florence County in 1995 and spent 20 years enjoying the land and family memories. The couple moved to Evergreen Village in Kingsford in 2015.

Don enjoyed hunting, especially bird hunting with his lab, Hershey. He also enjoyed fishing for most of his life but turned to golf in his later years, which he did with his golf buddy, Kay. Don was also an avid Packer fan, reader and loved working on mind puzzles.

He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Kay; and one brother, Charles (Lois) Krall of Theresa, Wisconsin; one sister-in-law, Marilyn Hill of Port Charlotte, Florida; numerous and all special nieces and nephews; and many close and special friends.

In accordance with Don's wishes, a private celebration of his life will be held with family and close friends at Lakeview Memorial Park in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the spring, where he will be interred.
