Donald Gene Eggers, “Don”
Age 86, of New Brighton, formerly Sauk Centre, MN passed away Wednesday, March 23, 2022. He was a graduate of Sauk Centre High School in 1953. Don was an active member of Messiah Lutheran Church in Mounds View for over 60 years. At Messiah, he was an elder, president of the congregation, and most recently he was on the senior maintenance team. He really enjoyed his time with the Messiah family. He was a past union president for the American Can Company and worked there for 44 years and was on the board of directors for the Canco Credit Union. Recently he enjoyed playing cards with good friends as much as he could. Don’s talents were many, but by far his favorite role was as beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to so many. Don’s main passions were hunting, fishing, cribbage, and a long suffering MN sports fan.
