Marie, MI, Wanda (Sam) Marble of Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and Bernie (Calvin) Whiteman of Canton, IL; his brothers:  Manny (Cindy Payment) Krull of Sault Ste. Marie, MI, Mike (Kathleen Cook) Krull of Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and Ronald Krull of Neebish Island, MI.  He is also survived by his brother-in-law: John “Muggo” Nolan; many nieces and nephews; his special friend: Cathy Opanasenko-Rosales of Lansing, MI, and his special Neebish Island friends:  Diane & Les Laitinen, Anthony & Janet Douglas, and Diona Roja. 

Donald was preceded in death by his parents; and his sisters: Shirley Nolan, Diane Krull, and Tina Laaksonen.

A private family memorial service will be held at C.S. Mulder Funeral Home and Cremation Services.  A Celebration of Life will be held later in the summer.
