Donald W. Streicher, age 88, a longtime resident of Janesville, passed away early Sunday morning, December 16, 2018, at the Agrace Center for Hospice & Palliative Care, with his children by his side. He was born January 5, 1930 in Kewanee, IL, the son of the late William P. & Edythe J. (Johnson) Streicher.

Don was a veteran of the U.S. Army, serving his country during the Korean Conflict. On January 21, 1956 he married the former Ellinor M. Daege. She preceded him in death on October 13, 2016. Don worked for over 33 years as a cost accountant for General Motors Corp. until his retirement. He was a longtime faithful member of St. William’s Catholic Church, where he served his parish as an usher. He and Ellinor were former members of the Janesville Swingin’ Squares, and enjoyed working as a volunteer at Mercyhealth Hospital & Trauma Center. He was a member of the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge #197, and had attained the standing of a Fellow. He enjoyed golfing, playing card games, and outdoor sports. He had traveled extensively and had traveled overseas and to all 50 states.

Besides his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by his 3 brothers, Melvin, Darrell, and David Streicher.

Don was one of those who reminded one of the good in people. He helped when asked at the Moose Club, he always had the best to say of others, and I will always be reminded of his goodness.
