Obituary for Donald L. Fore

Fore, Donald L. Age 85 U.S. Marine Veteran

Beloved husband of the late Eileen (nee Dietze).
Loving father of Stacey (Ralph) Catron, Susan (Rick) Dralle, and Tina (Mike) Deeke.
Cherished grandfather of Katie, Timothy, Erik, and Lindsey.
Adored son of the late Charles and Phyllis Eklund (nee Geeves).
Dear brother of Charles (Judy) Eklund, and Emily (Bill) Scholz.

Don was born in Chicago, IL on June 4, 1932. He graduated from Fenger High School. He enlisted in the USMC, served in the Korean War 1st Marine AAA 90 MM, and was a very proud Marine his entire life. After his military service, he graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Architecture. He was a practicing Architect for more than 60 years. Don married the love of his life, Eileen Dietze, on October 3, 1959. They were married 52 years before she passed on November 3, 2011. Don was a sportsman, he loved to hunt and fish. He was happiest fishing, especially in the “U.P.” with family and friends. He hunted with his German shorthair pointers and belonged to Fort Dearborn Hunting Club. He was a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. He was a loyal Sunday and Tuesday Breakfast Club attendee with friends and family. An avid reader and loved listening to jazz and country music. No one could grill on the Weber like Don could; and if you thought you could, he’d be sure to remind you otherwise! He was a great father, grandpa, dog grandfather to many pups, and friend – he will be missed by so many.
