Donald J. Poirier, 80, of Wenatchee, WA, passed away on Friday, August 15, 2014. Donald J. Poirier was born June 9, 1934, to Felix and Eliza (Charron) Poirier at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Yakima, WA. Don attended Marquette High School and lettered in Football and Basketball. He later entered the Coast Guard and was one of the ship’s cooks, as they feasted on King Crab while breaking ships out of the ice, off the coast of Alaska.

In 1957, he married Mary Jean Schmidt and they had five children, while Don worked as a baker, his chosen career. In 1996, he married Carol Ann Witten (Travers) and added two more children to his family.

He loved to watch sporting events involving his grandchildren, as well as on TV. He was a wonderful life partner, father and grandfather and a generous, God-loving man of common sense, integrity, strong work ethic and extraordinary love.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Lynn; and infant son, Chris. He is survived by his loving wife, Carol; and his children, Dan (Kathy) Poirier, Scott (Jennifer) Poirier, Mike (Maureen) Poirier, Heidi (Dale) Clark and Amy (Clive) Cole. He is also survived by ten grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and his longtime pets, Pearl and Gigi. We love you Poppa, always have and always will!

Memorial Graveside Service was held on Friday morning, August 22, 2014, at Wenatchee City Cemetery. Please express your thoughts and memories of the online guestbook at
