Donald R. Guisinger

Donald ‘Don’ Guisinger, 62, passed away on January 16, 2020, at his home in Des Moines. Don was a lifetime abstractor, having managed Iowa Title, American Abstract, and later opening his own business, ProTitle, in 2008. He was an avid Green Bay Packers fan and could always be found watching football on Sunday with a cold Budweiser. Don loved to spend time at his lake house in Minnesota and intended on retiring there. Above all, Don loved his family, his friends, and dearly loved his granddaughter, Chloe.

Don had a strong passion for music. He played in several bands from his teen years into his adult life with some of his life-long friends and family. Don created a sound proof room in his home to host band practice for several years and always looked forward to those evenings. Don could often be found with headphones on, jamming to tunes while working. He shared his passion for music with family and played with his brother Jimmy and nephew Justin on many occasions.

Don is survived by his mother, Clara Ann; his children, David and Danielle; his siblings, Michael (Maggie), Patricia, Mary (Stan) and Richard (LaTaunya); his granddaughter, Chloe, and many nieces and nephews. In death, he rejoins his father, Ralph and brother, Jimmy.

Please join us after services for a reception will follow at Felix and Oscars on Merle Hay for food, beverages, and sharing of memories.
