Stifler, Donald 11/11/1936 - 3/3/2021 Wausau, WI Donald Joseph Stifler (84) was many things through the course of his life. He was one of the sought after "Stifler twins" who were the youngest players to sign a CLASS A baseball contract at the time, a businessman, a writer, a photographer and a Scout Master. He played tennis and golf and was a clubhouse comedian, but most people will probably remember him as a man with a huge heart, a loud laugh and a love for life. Don had more best friends than just about anyone and his passing will surely leave a void in each of their lives. Don was born November 11, 1936, moments before his twin brother Jerry and thirteen years before their brother Mike, both of whom he leaves behind. The were raised Detroit Tiger fans in Dearborn, Michigan by their departed parents Winola (Auiler) and Edward Reese Stifler. Don attended Western Michigan University and lived in Kalamazoo before relocating to Illinois, a place he called home for the better part of two decades, before settling in Wausau, WI to start his own business in the early 1980's. Wausau was home until he retired to Minocqua, WI where he resided until his passing. He leaves behind five sons and their spouses, Jim (Karin), Tom (Linda), Mike (Meg), John and Matt (Jayme) and ten grandchildren (Nate, Colin, Ryan, Paul, Emmett, Miles, Clara, Henry, Cohen and Marlowe) all of whom love him deeply and will miss him immensely. He was also looking forward to meeting his first great-grandson, Reese Emmett, born March 7, 2021. Donald was a man of strong faith and conviction. Through the course of his religious life he served as a Deacon at First Presbyterian, a CCD Teacher at St Marks Catholic and a teacher at Saint Anthony's Retreat Center. While in the end, his body gave way to a consuming cancer and acute kidney failure, he has departed this earth a whole man, filled with the love and grace of his Lord. As Don's family and friends are spread far and wide, due to COVID, there will not be a formal service. The family asks that you gather however you see fit to celebrate his life. If you would like to do something in his memory, consider a donation to Ascension Hospice Minocqua or Aspirus Hospice House Wausau.
