Donald Norman Fladhammer

July 20, 1928May 12, 2019

Don Fladhammer, 90, of Phoenix, was welcomed into the arms of Jesus on May 12, 2019. He passed peacefully at Hospice of the Valley with his family at his side. Don was usually a quiet, unassuming man, with a keen sense of humor, and well-liked by everyone who knew him. He will be greatly missed until we meet again in God’s Kingdom.

Don was born in Vernon County, Wisconsin on July 20, 1928 on the family farm where he lived until 1955. On April 2, 1955 he married Dana (Skolos) and they moved to Milwaukee. In 1958 they moved to Arizona and Don was always glad he made that move. Don worked in Sales and Management for McMahan’s Furniture Company and retired from there after 42 years. He was a member of Abiding Savior Lutheran Church and Cross of Christ Lutheran Church.

Don is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Dana; his son David (Cathy) and daughter Ann Kaetzel (Jim); three grandchildren Daniel (Tedi), Jacob (Cassandra), and Joshua; and four great-grandchildren Rylan, Abby, Charlee, and Brooklynn. He is also survived by his sister Sharon Lindsay (Philip) of Wisconsin. Don was preceded in death by his son Jon, his daughter Susan, and his granddaughter Michelle. A Celebration of Life will be held on May 30, 11:00 a.m. at Green Acres 401 N. Hayden Rd., Scottsdale.

I remember your wedding and how handsome and kind Don was then and always. I am grateful Don and Dana Rue found each other and have had 64 years of loving companionship in this life. Thank you for your model to the rest of us and may all who miss Don feel the divine love all around us as well as inside of us.

Remembering when Don and you came to visit me in Madison a few years ago....we reconnected and I am grateful that we have stayed in touch. Don had a warm smile and a calmness that was still there when we got together a few months ago.

As our faith teaches us, there is a place prepared, when our time comes, our Lord comes and takes us to be with him. Don is safe and where he is meant to be now. I will keep you in my heart through your grief, Cindy
