Donald E. Pilon passed away Wednesday evening, July 14, 2021 at his home in Sheboygan after a lengthy illness. He was 65 years old.

Don was born November 11, 1955 in Sheboygan, the son of David and Phyllis (nee Walsh) Pilon. He graduated from Sheboygan North High School and worked as a meat cutter for the local Park ‘n Shops. For many years, he worked for the Sheboygan Area School District as a custodian until his retirement in 2013.

On October 28, 1978, Don was united in marriage with Patricia Pitsch at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Sheboygan.

Don was a longtime member of Crossroads Community Church, where he enjoyed the leadership, messages and music. An active outdoorsman, Don loved hunting, fishing, and spending time up north at the family cabin in Pembine.
