Donald Furstenberg

February 25, 1941 — June 22, 2021

Donald Leonard Furstenberg, 80, of Pillager, passed away at home on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. We will cherish our family memories of hunting, 4-wheeling, camping, fishing, and sitting around the campfire singing classic country songs. He was a man of few words, yet we always knew we were loved.

Don was born February 25, 1941 in Platte lake Township of Crow Wing County to Ferdinand and Ingaborg Furstenberg. He attended school in Brainerd and married his high school sweetheart Betty Williams in 1962. Together they had 4 children and 10 grandchildren. He worked as a custodian at the Brainerd Public Library and at Franklin School for 25 years until his retirement.

He is survived by:

His wife Betty

Daughter Sheila (Corby) Niemeyer

Grandchildren Gunnar and Chandler

Daughter Pam (Rob) Nelson

Grandchildren Evan, Austin, Jared, and Parker

Son Kyle Furstenberg

Son Mike Furstenberg

Grandchildren Hunter, Savannah, and Mason

Bonus granddaughter Marisa Johnson

Sister Arlene (Jim) Rudbeck

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Laura, and his stepfather Henry Brown.
