Donald Beck

December 21, 1941 — August 10, 2020

Town of Easton

Donald R. Beck, 78, Town of Easton, passed away on Monday, August 10, 2020, at Mount View Care Center.

Donald was born in Wausau on December 21, 1941, to the late Russell and Olga (Wenzel) Beck. After completing high school, Donald went on to complete his associate degree at Northcentral Technical College. He retired from the United States Post Office, where he held many titles throughout the years. Donald met, fell in love and married the love of his life, Jan Schmidt, on August 24, 1963. She preceded him in death on October 8, 2012.

Donald was a “salt of the earth” man, who had a quiet charm. He was a kind man, who was liked by all who had the chance to meet him. He enjoyed spending time outdoors, spending time up in the woods, making maple syrup, hunting, or fishing. In his later years, he became an avid golfer during the Summer months and continued to enjoy going bowling in the Winter months. Donald served several terms on the Easton Town Board and was extremely active at his church, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Town of Easton. Donald will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is survived by his children, Todd Beck and Brenda (Jeff) Kitsembel; as well as his two granddaughters, Alyssa and Emma (fiancé Luke Vargo) Kitsembel.

In addition to his parents, Donald was preceded in death by his wife, Jan; and his sister Carolyn Sippl.

Visitation will take place on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm and again on Thursday from 10:00 am until the time of services. All to take place at the church.
