GRANTON -- Donald Struensee, 44, of Granton, died Wednesday, April 8, 2009, at the Wausau Aspirus Hospital in Wausau.

Donald Larry Struensee was born on Aug. 10, 1964, in Neillsville, the son of Dale and Barbara (Krosonski) Struensee. He attended Neillsville Public Schools.

He is survived by his children, Donald Struensee Jr. of Granton and Donelle Nicole Struensee of Harrison, Ark.; his significant other, Faye Klein of Granton and her children, Dana, Dawn, Deann and Devin Klein. Don is also survived by his father, Dale Struensee of Neillsville; two brothers, Duane Struensee and Daniel Struensee both of Colorado Springs, Colo.; two sisters, Sandy High of Oregon and Sarah Struensee of Neillsville; nieces and nephews, especially Chad and Sam; all of his friends at Tesmer Construction and many other family and friends.

Don was preceded in death by his mother.
