Donald D. Truax, age 92, of St. Louis Park, passed away peacefully on October 9th at St Therese of New Hope.

After growing up in Northfield, Don joined the army during the Korean War, and while serving at Camp Stoneman in California he met Marie, the love of his life. After completing their service, the young couple moved to the Twin Cities to raise a family, There was no depth to the love Don had for his family, and the frequent Truax family gatherings are legendary. He was an active member of the American Legion, and he enjoyed fishing, dancing and almost every kind of sport.
