Mr. Korte was a shining example for us all who lived on Academy. His devotion to Marge-God-his family-and to all things in his life, was second to none. When I run into a member of the Korte family, I see Don. Yes, you all exude the same love, friendship , and goodwill that he possessed. It's a beautiful thing to see. with love, the York family

Grandpa Korte, the only grandpa I have ever had, the strongest best man there ever was. He would do anything for anyone and no one worked harder than he did. He was always down to play catch and he could fix literally anything. He taught me to sing loud and proud esp if it was a church song or take me out to the ballgame. The world got to enjoy 92 years of your goodness and kindness and I know you made an impact on many people through out the years. Im glad you get to rest forever with Grandma now :heartpulse::heartpulse:
