Don was born in Story City, on July 14, 1934, the son of Lyle and Sylva
(Rullestad) Abrahamson. He graduated from Plymouth High School in 1951 and Mason
City Junior College in 1953. He was united in marriage to Janice White on June
10, 1956. Don served in the United States Military from 1957-1959 at Fort Bragg
in Fayetteville, N.C. After serving his country, he returned to Mason City where
he had a long and successful career as an insurance agent for Central Life
Assurance Company. After retiring from the insurance business, he followed his
passion for cars by working as a car salesman at McKinley Motors in Osage.
While Don enjoyed his career, his family and friends were the most important to
him. He enjoyed wintering in Arizona with Jan. When he wasn't on the golf
course, he could be found having coffee with friends, walking at the mall,
playing cards, and volunteering at the hospital and St. James Lutheran Church,
where he was a member for many years. Don enjoyed watching sports and was an arm
chair quarterback for the Hawkeyes and Vikings. He was very involved in the
lives of his children and grandchildren, and took great joy in spending time
with them.
Those left to celebrate his life include his wife, Jan of Mason City; two
children, Cindy Wickwire and her husband, Scott, and David Abrahamson and his
wife, Stacey, all from Mason City; four grandchildren, Lieh Anne Eriksen and her
husband, Brian of Mason City, Jillian Schulte and her husband, Jay of Cedar
