Donald Fischer

Donald Richard Fischer was born on July 7, 1940 on the family farm in Woods Township, Chippewa County, Minnesota, the son of Eleanor Ione (Sarazin) and Elso Heinrich Fischer. The family moved several times and they lived in the Benson, Kerkhoven, Eagle Lake areas before moving to Willmar. Don completed his education here and graduated from Willmar High School in 1957. On February 4, 1966 at the Bunde Christian Reformed Church, he was married to Mary Anna Wubben.

After his retirement he worked part time in Janitorial Services at the Willmar Public Schools. Don enjoyed fishing, drawing, doing puzzles in the paper and being a jokester.
