Donald Paul Blomstrom, of Delafield, Wisconsin, passed away on Friday, March 18, 2016, of a sudden heart attack, at the age of 58. He was born in Winner, South Dakota to Paul and Dorothy Blomstrom.
Don had a larger than life personality, lived life to the fullest, and had a smile that lit up a room. He was greatly loved, and loved greatly. His generosity knew no bounds. We are blessed to have learned many valuable lessons from Don during his 58 years. He believed in making everyday moments special. He believed in being kind and welcoming to everyone. He believed cars should be driven fast, music should be listened to loudly and steaks should only be served rare. Don believed you should always be making new memories because he knew that was all you had at the end of the day.
Don was an adoring husband to his wife, Tina (Palmer), for 38 years. He made her coffee every morning and told her he loved her every night. Don was a very proud father to Marissa, Nick, and his wife, Laura (Wann). He was affectionately known as Pop Pop to four beautiful grandchildren, Isabelle (10), Charlotte (9), Cole (6), and Sam (4). He was an amazing brother and friend to Pat (Bill), Ray (Robin), Joe (Lori), and Jim. He was known as Uncle Don to more people than we can count.
