Donald Lyle Mogard, son of Leonard and Velma (Shaw) Mogard, was born August 28, 1957 in Dawson, MN. He was baptized and confirmed at Grace Lutheran Church in Dawson. Don’s love of people began at a very young age. He enjoyed tennis, swimming, and just being with friends in town throughout his youth. Don graduated from Dawson-Boyd High School in 1975 and joined the National Guard.

Don married Loretta Liebl on April 11, 1981 at Grace Lutheran Church in Dawson. Don started his career as the manager of Godfather’s Pizza in Hutchinson, MN and worked numerous jobs through his life including: Midway Airlines, Champion Airlines, Radio Personality in Slayton MN, Co-Owner of Mogie’s restaurant in Dawson, Hotel Management, Sales, and as part of a Locator Team at USIC. Don’s work ethic set a great example for his co-workers throughout his career.

Don enjoyed golf, music, and conversing with friends, neighbors and family. His nieces, nephews and siblings were a gift to him, as he was to them. One of Don’s favorite things was coming home to the cats every day after work, they were always ready for a little rumble.
