Donald Charles Rudolph Grabowska, resident of Aspen Meadows Health and Rehabilitation Center of Billings, returned to the loving arms of his heavenly Father on April 2, 2018 in Billings, at the age of 79.
Don is survived by his children, Dan (Alisa) and Momi; brother, Lewis (Joanne) Grabowska; grandchildren, Justine (Paul), Jimi, Jenna, Jessica (Cody), Jesiah, Alyx and Leigha; several great- grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Don was preceded in death by his loving wife, Joyce, daughter, Joy Faith and bothers, Jimmy and Ray.
Don was born on Dec. 16, 1938 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, to Clarence and Alma Grabowska. After attending Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Don went into the ministry as a missionary, pastor and music director. He married Joyce Cunningham in 1963, and together they raised a family and opened their doors and hearts to many other children. Other than serving his church, Don also ran drug and alcohol recovery programs. His favorite title, though, was Papa Don to his grandkids.
A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. Flowers and condolences may be sent to the Grabowska family at PO Box 161 Park City, MT 59063. Memories may be shared at www.dahlfuneralchapel.com
