Donald E. Frohmader, age 90, passed away on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at the Aurora Medical Center Washington County. He was born on January 1, 1930 in Clifton, WI to Irvin and Frances (nee Kruppe) Frohmader.

Don is preceded in death by the love of his life Mary Frohmader (Thoennes) whom he married on June 3, 1961. Together they dedicated many years volunteering for Citizens’ Advocacy and St. Vincent DePaul. Ultimately becoming a Guardian for an individual with special needs, and serving as President of Washington County St. Vincent DePaul.

Don was born and raised on his family’s dairy farm in Clifton Wisconsin. After leaving the farm he served in the US Air Force during the Korean War prior to a long career as a lineman for Wisconsin Electric. In retirement Don pursued his true passion gardening, earning him the nickname “Farmer Frohmader” having a beautiful yard and providing fresh vegetables to all the neighbors in the subdivision. He was happiest when he was in the outdoors and loved spending time on the family farm hunting, fishing and making firewood.

Donald is survived by his son Ken (Lenore) and his grandchildren Heather and Kayla. Donald is further survived by his nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

The family would like to thank the following; the Honor Flight, staff at Meals on Wheels and BrightStar for their loving and attentive care of Don. The family wishes for donations to be made to the Kewaskum House of prayer.

Visitation will be at the Phillip Funeral Home Chapel (1420 W Paradise Dr. West Bend, WI 53095) on Saturday, September 19th from 9:00AM until 10:30AM.
