     Donald B. Pflaum was born August 21, 1944 in Grand Forks, ND to Clifford H. and Lucille (Boyd) Pflaum. He grew up in Wales, ND and graduated from Wales High School. Don then attended Mayville State Teachers College, where he received his degree in Chemistry and Physics. On October 24, 1964, he married Mary(Janie) Sateren at Lakota, ND. Don and Janie then moved to Cavalier where he taught school until starting Rusten and Pflaum Construction. Don enjoyed traveling the world on hunting trips and spent countless hours ice fishing with his Grandson Scotty. He enjoyed spending time with his family and going to his grandkids activities every chance he got. He took great pride in working on projects in the garage and on the job site and was never caught sitting still.
