Donald Raymond Weninger, age 83, of Chilton, died on Tuesday, July 17, 2012, at the Chilton Care Center in Chilton. He was born on February 21, 1929 in Chilton, only child of the late Aegidius and Marie (Turba) Weninger. He married the love of his life, Leona Nickel on August 13, 1953 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Jericho, WI. Don spent his working career first as a butcher and later at the Farm & Home in Chilton. He enjoyed providing pig roasts and snowmobiling in earlier years at Crivitz, building a cabin in the woods, and loved Grandma's homemade breads and poppy seed torte. He looked forward to Packer games, card playing with dear friends, sturgeon spearing, salmon fishing and hunting. Family traditions were held close to Don's heart.

He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. He was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Lee in 2010; his parents; brothers-in-law: Alex Nickel, Robert Kolinski; and sister-in-law: Christine Nickel. Funeral service will be at 11:00 AM on Friday, July 20, 2012 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church (54 E. Main St.) in Chilton with the Rev. Bob Kollath officiating.
