Donald L. Uppendahl ’61

Born in Springfield, Colorado, Donald grew up in Kansas. He married Margarette Wohl; they moved to Portland and raised a family. A graduate of the University of Colorado, Don earned his MA at Reed and taught at Washington High School and Portland Community College, retiring as dean of business and industry. Serving in the U.S. Army and the U.S. Army Reserve, he retired as colonel.

Don was an avid outdoorsman who climbed several Cascade peaks. The couple moved to Bend in 1999, where he lovingly cared for Margarette as she battled Alzheimer’s disease. His daughters, Carol, Sue, Rebecca, and Mary; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren survive him.
