Donald L. Neuert

Donald L. Neuert, 51, of Beaver Dam passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at his home.

Don was the son of Donald D. and Sharon (Fort) Neuert, born on February 9, 1966 in Chehalis, Wash.  He married his beloved wife Kelly Erickson on April 25, 1987 in Bellevue, Neb.

Don is survived by his wife, Kelly of Beaver Dam; his daughter, Hannah of Beaver Dam; his mother, Sharon Neuert of Centralia, Wash.; his siblings: Deanne Neuert-Putman of Centralia, Wash., Deborah Neuert-Kilgore (James Kilgore) of Chehalis, Wash., and Darrell (Alma) Neuert of Centralia, Wash.; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  He was preceded in death by his father.  

Don served his country in the U.S. Air Force during Operation Desert Shield and was a member of Beaver Dam VFW Post #1163.  He was a graduate of UW-Oshkosh and completed a Master of Arts in Security Studies at the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security, where he received the Zimbardo Award;which recognizes the student in each cohort whose analyses and insights exemplify the best in academic scholarship.  Don was employed by the State of Wisconsin for 19 years, most recently as the Strategic National Stockpile Coordinator for the Department of Health Services in Madison.  He served as the Ward 10 alderperson for 11 years, was previously the chairperson of the Administrative Committee and was recently elected Council President.  

Don was devoted to his community and his family, and had an enthusiasm for life that was contagious. He enjoyed the outdoors, especially hiking and kayaking with his family, and fly fishing which he learned from his dad.  He loved sports, especially watching his daughter play field hockey and following his niece and nephews’ sporting events, and was an avid Seattle Seahawks fan.  He loved spending time with his family, cooking his traditional weekend breakfasts and supporting his daughter’s singing, dancing and musical performances.  He will be remembered as unfailingly kind, generous and good-humored by all those whose lives he touched.

A memorial gathering will be held at St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church in Beaver Dam on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 4 p.m. until the time of the Mass of Christian Burial at 6 p.m.  Rev. Michael Erwin will officiate.  

In recognition of Don’s commitment to health and the Beaver Dam community, memorial gifts in support of the community walking trail to be built on Wayland Academy’s south campus may be sent to Wayland Academy at wayland.org/gift or 101 N. University Ave., Beaver Dam, Wi, 53916

Koepsell-Murray Funeral Home in Beaver Dam is serving the family.  Online condolences may be made at www.koepsellfh.com
