Donald Pell, age 83, resident of Hayden, Idaho, died Aug. 18, 2019, at the North Idaho Hospice Schneidmiller House, in Coeur d’Alene. Don was born Jan. 9, 1936, in Lincoln, Neb., to Raymond and Ruby (Fristo) Pell. He moved with his family in about 1940, from Nebraska to Chewelah, Wash. Don graduated high school there.

He later moved to Trentwood, Wash., where he lived for several years and worked for Krager Construction Company, specializing in water and sewer projects. He then went to work for Center Line Construction Company, of Rathdrum, Idaho.

The Pell family raised black Angus for many years.

Don enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding ATVs, and hanging out at their property on the Pend Oreille River, near Ione, Wash.

Don is survived by his wife, Patti, in Hayden, Idaho; sons and daughters-in-law, Ron and Connie of Athol, Idaho, and Tim and Tracy of Coeur d’Alene; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; sister, Marjorie Harlow in Great Falls, Mont., and brother, David, in Tonasket, Wash.
