Don entered peacefully into rest on Sunday, February 13, 2022 at the age of 86. Don Promes was born on December 13, 1935 in Wynot, NE and has been a Fremont resident for over 59 years.
Don married his high school sweetheart Sharon Forrest and together they shared their lives for nearly 50 years. Don was a Captain for the Fremont Fire Department, retiring after 31 years in service to his community. Don enjoyed sports, whether it was playing football, basketball or baseball in high school, coaching youth baseball and basketball teams, or rooting on his Oakland A’s. But he’ll be remembered most by his family and friends as one of the most loving, easy-going, and likeable guys you would ever meet.
