Donald G. Danielson

Donald G. Danielson, 80, of Walhalla, ND passed away Sunday, May 29, 2016 at his home. Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 3, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. at the St. Boniface Catholic Church, Walhalla, ND. Visitation will be held Thursday, June 2nd from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Nelson-Askew Funeral Home, Walhalla, ND. Burial will be held in the St. Boniface Catholic Cemetery.
Donald Glen Danielson was born November 30, 1935 in Cavalier County of North Dakota to Bernard and Bertha (Bjornson) Danielson. He grew up and attended school in Cavalier County.
On May 24, 1956, Don married Marie Theresa Gadaire at Leroy, ND. He worked in Walhalla before moving to the Los Angeles area. While there he owned and operated a welding and manufacturing shop and also worked as a mechanic. In 1970, they moved back to Walhalla. Don worked as a mechanic for Metelmann Farms, Northern Improvement, and Mayo Construction until his retirement.
Don enjoyed tinkering and fixing almost anything. In earlier years you could find him playing guitar in the evenings, he had a beautiful singing voice, if you could hear him. He was such a good guy and did kind things for others that he did quietly and made no mention of. We loved that about him.
He is survived by his children: Steve (Karen) Danielson, McVille, ND, Laura (Ken) Wiebe, Penticton, BC, Canada, Glenn Danielson, Walhalla, ND, Jeff (Charissa) Danielson, Poughkeepsie, NY, Tim (Jenny) Danielson, New Salem, ND; grandchildren: Cori (Tim) Hartje), Dawn (Scott) Hauck, Rich Danielson (Kayla); Jonathan Wiebe, Bryan (Julianne) Wiebe, Lindsay (Jody) Baker; Guy Danielson (Tonya), Anthony (Nicole) Danielson, Wade Danielson (Amanda); Rebekah (James) Hill, Sarah Danielson; Tovah Danielson, Sistene Danielson, Shea Danielson; 18 great-grandchildren; siblings: Neil Danielson, Sylvia Gaspard, and Beth Mathison.
Preceding him in death were his parents; wife, Marie on November 3, 1976; brothers: Carl, Chris, Bjorn "Dan", Pete, Dale, Ray, Emil, and Lloyd Danielson; sisters: Ethel and Gloria.

Words cannot express how sad I feel for the loss of Donnie. He always had a soft spoken voice and a smile on his face. He was always so good to me. I remember how many times he would let me ride his snowmobile for the powder puff runs. His Grandchildren will sure miss him... RIP Donnie

Sending our love your way. Our mom (Sylvia) has always spoken so kindly of your dad. I'm sad we didn't have the opportunity to get to know him, with so many miles between us. God bless you all, and I'm praying for you in this difficult time. Much love, Nancy
