Donald F. "Don" Pack

Pack, Donald F. “Don”

Saginaw, Michigan

Our loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and dear friend passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, November 21, 2022, surrounded by his family. He was 77 years old. Donald F. Pack was born on January 14, 1945 in Saginaw to the late Albert and Marguerite (Pack) Bollenbacher. He married Arlene M. Obrecht on December 10, 1982 in Saginaw, and she survives him. Don worked with BAC Union Local #9 for 40 years in the Terrazzo and Tile industry. During his retirement years, he liked to buy and resell many different items. He proudly was known as “The Boatman” and “Dealing Don”. During the winter he ran his plow truck, helping friends and neighbors. Don was often found tinkering in his garage, enjoying a good prank, and a great game of poker. His great joy came from spending time with family, friends and his pets.

Don is survived by his wife, Arlene; children from his first marriage: Karen (Jim) Bedell, Rick Pack and Mary (Brad) Navarro; grandchildren: Zach Bedell, Tony and Peyton Pack, Trey, Madison and Kylie Navarro; great-granddaughter, Kinsley; step-children: Heidi Westendorf and Dirk (Krystal) Westendorf; step-grandchildren: Brianne and Gavin Westendorf; many nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.
