Papierniak Donald J. (19 MAY 1939 – 5 MAR 2019)

Donald John Papierniak was born in Thorp, WI to Louis and Helen Papierniak. After honorable discharge from the US Marine Corps in 1960, he began a three-decade career with Allstate Insurance Co., married and started a family. His work and family took him to new locations and new experiences in Colorado, Illinois and finally Nevada

Don lived life to its fullest. He was a devoted husband and father and a friend to so very many. He will be remembered for his strength, optimism and humor. Don is survived by his wife, Beverly (Henderson, NV); his daughter, Lori Papierniak (Parker, CO); sister, Judith Koslo (Germantown, WI); brothers and sisters-in-law; Gilbert Pitt, Barbara Peters, Henry and Kathie Steare, Leonard and Sherri Kopka; and several nieces and nephews and their families. He was proceeded in death by his parents; his daughter, Dianne Trenholm; mother and father-in-law: Walter and Emelia Kopka; brothers; Edward and Louis Papierniak; and sisters; Irene Cattanach and Dorothy Pitt.

Per Don's wishes, no formal services will be held. He will be missed and dearly remembered through thoughts and prayers from family and friends.
