Donald Allan Lesavage

August 3, 1949 — December 10, 2022



Donald Allan Lesavage of Stoughton, Wisconsin, passed away peacefully at his home, on Saturday, December 10, 2022, at the age of 73.

Don was a graduate of Nicolet High School and remained friends with many of his classmates throughout his life. He was active in the Army National Guard for 6 years, from 1969 to 1975, and received a Rifle Marksmanship Badge. Which means he was a straight shooter!

He is survived by his brother, Wayne Leo Strykowski; his sister, Malia Lesavage; his nephew, Christopher Michael Lesavage; his niece, Nicole Elizabeth Lesavage; along with his wife, Mary Kay Lesavage; and many loving relatives and special friends.

Donald was preceded in death by his parents, Harry Edward and Veronica Katherine Lesavage.

He was a professional painter by trade and had a business, TLC Painting, in the Stoughton/Madison area for over 30 years. He had a passion for painting and made many people happy with the TLC ‘tender loving care’ service he offered each client.

Don also liked to travel. He and Mary traveled to many different countries. Some of the places they visited were Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, Thailand, England, and Spain.

Also, throughout his life, he was an avid antique/vintage car enthusiast. Always had at least one or two of these admired cars. He started out with a 1937 Ford, right after high school, and throughout the years expanded to a '65 GTO, a couple of Corvettes, an MG, Cadillac convertible, Karmann Ghia, '62 Impala SS, and numerous VW Beetles, just to name a few.

One of Don’s hobbies was going over to the local VFW or bowling alley in Stoughton and playing the machines. He was very lucky and many more times then not, came out a winner. He also liked skiing, fishing, boating, and golfing.

Also, he loved the kittycats that he had and cared for. He always had a couple furry friends to keep him company and they were very important to him throughout his life.

Don is deeply loved by his family, relatives , and friends, and is greatly missed.

Don’s family would like to extend a heart-filled thank you to the staff at Agrace Hospice for their compassionate care.

Don chose cremation and did not want a funeral. But we will have a ‘Celebration of Life’ in Mid-Summer. Please email: if you would like to join us in celebrating Don’s life! He always loved a good party!

In lieu of flowers, etc., please consider sending donations to the following:

For donations ‘in his memory’ your local no kill animal shelter would be the best place.
