Donald LeRoy Bingham

March 19, 1939 — February 2, 2022

Donald Bingham, age 82, peacefully left his earthly home into the arms of Jesus on February 2, 2022 with his loving family at his bedside.

Don was born in Glenwood, MN on March 19, 1939 to Donald E. and Anice F. Bingham. Don entered the Army through selective service in 1963. He served as a helicopter crew chief in Berlin, during the Cold War, and was honorably discharged in 1965.

He was a diesel mechanic and an oil pipeline flow station operator in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska for many years. He enjoyed mechanic work, taking his family on fishing and hunting trips, hiking with friends and family, biking, and being in the great outdoors.

He had an incredible work ethic, always busy on a project, a man you couldn't keep down. Don was a firm believer in keeping Jesus first, family second, and everything else would fall into place.
