Donald Brummond

April 9, 1953 — July 22, 2023


Donald Brummond, 70, of Fargo, ND died Saturday, July 22, at Sanford Hospice House, Fargo. He was the son of Joyce and the late Robert Brummond.

Don was a man of infinite curiosity who loved many things: cold and faraway places (Antarctica, Greenland, New Zealand), sailing, biking, skiing, hauling sugar beets, Swedish cars. But he was passionate about one thing: helping others. Whether he was tuning up a bicycle for a neighbor or helping a Concordia undergraduate navigate the mysteries of physics, Donald relished the opportunity to be of service to others and to lend a hand.

Don was diagnosed with esophageal cancer last November.

He is survived by his mother, Joyce; his sister, Janice; his partner of 32 years, Barbara Edin; extended family; and countless friends.

At Donald’s request, no service will be held. Memorials may be given to Dark Sky Association, MN Conservation Volunteer, or ND Public Radio.
