Donald E. Madsen
October 13, 1933 - March 23, 2017
Donald E. Madsen of Gold Hill, Oregon passed away peacefully March 23, 2017 with his family by his side. He was born October 13, 1933 in Ocean Park, California to Paul and Loreen Madsen.
Don loved to travel with his wife, Donna (deceased March 11, 2017.) He especially loved the outdoors and the beauty of the Rogue River. Pop, as his family lovingly referred to him, would often be spotted at Pattie's Kitchen and Seven Feathers Casino Resort by his bright-colored Hawaiian shirts. Most important to him was serving his Father in Heaven and taking care of his family. He did both graciously and with all his heart.
He is survived by his daughter, Cheryle Madsen-Stockle; his stepson, Kyle Kelley and his wife, Dodie. He held a special place in his heart for his grandchildren, Amanda, Matthew, and Michael Stockle. Don was also from a large family with seven siblings.
