Shortly after graduating from Detroit Lakes High School in 1967, Donald trained to be a police officer. He served his rookie year in Detroit Lakes but soon moved to Wahpeton, ND to join their police department. Don proudly & vigilantly served the City of Wahpeton & Richland County & its residents for 35 years & retired in 2005 as a Detective Sergeant. Don’s only child, Kathryn (Andy) Arens of Nashwauk, MN has decided to postpone funeral services for warmer weather as to give her father the full policeman’s funeral he so rightly deserves.
