Our sympathy to the family.  Don was our teacher many years ago at Lewiston High.  He was a favorite teacher of ours way back then.  RIP

Please share with the Wantock family that I always enjoyed seeing Don in the dining room and at the social hours held at Callista Court. His family Rich and Yvonne were wonderful and caring people who visited him often. I missed continuing seeing the good folks that lived there over this past year. Reading more about him, what a wonderful and rich life he must have had, my only regret is I didn't spend time with him to have hi show me how to "speed read." Please send my condolences to Rich and Yvonne. His spirit soars high now and may he find plenty of golfing and maybe even catch a round with my dad Gene Frank up their inside of heaven's gates. With care, Peggy Whalen, Winona MN

Don took me under his wing when I came to Stewartville High School 50 years ago this past fall.  I will be forever indebted to his kindness in making sure that my classes were filled with Stewartville’s best and brightest.  Don had a recognizable laugh that resonated throughout the school.  His stories of his WWII experiences would fill a book.  Don was the living embodiment of the Greatest Generation...a person to be remembered for a lifetime.

Fond memories of Mr. Wantock, my high school guidance counselor in Stewartville.  A kind, elegant gentleman.
