Donald Lee Kraupie, 60, of Pocatello, Idaho, passed away peacefully Friday the 7th of June, 2013.
He was born to the late Henry Kraupie and Violet (Payne) Kraupie on July 4, 1952 in Bridgeport, Nebraska. He was the youngest of eight children, and is survived by his son Marshall Kraupie and daughter Tauna Kelly, and his grandchildren Malory, Zach, William, Ayden and Seth.
An avid hunter, gardener and fisherman, Don also enjoyed raising and riding horses, along with passing those skills on to his children and grandchildren. A generous soul, he loved spending time with family and was always willing to share what he had and lend a helping hand.
A loving son, brother, father, friend, uncle, and grandfather, Donald will be missed by family and friends. We would like to say a special thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello for the support and dedication to Donald and the rest of his family.
