Obituary

Donald Charles Elzerman Sr., longtime resident of Roseville, died peacefully November 3, 2019 surrounded by the love of his family. He was 84 years of age.

Don was born in Fraser, Michigan on October 24, 1935, son of the late Earl and Lillian (Puls) Elzerman. He was a 1953 Fraser High School graduate. Don was united in marriage to his beloved wife, Joann Marie Brichetto, on June 30, 1956. Their union was blessed with three wonderful sons, Donald, Paul and Kenneth of whom he loved and cherished. Don retired as the accountant and controller from Hilton Hotels in 1990 after 37 years of dedicated service. He loved to tend to his garden and was known for his beautiful flowers and his amazing tomatoes. He also loved to go to his vacation home with his wife and family on Leisure Lake. Don enjoyed staying informed with the current events and was a true Detroit sports fan. He was always happy and never met a stranger. "Whats Cookin'?" He would commonly ask with care and a genuine smile. Above all, he was a family man who his grandchildren and great grandchildren became the apple of his eye. Don and Joann tried to make every grandchild's game or recital and treasured every moment in their company. Don will be greatly missed and his light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

Don is the beloved husband of 63 years to Joann; dearest father of Donald (Annette) Jr., Paul (Debbie) and Kenneth (Jill) Elzerman; cherished grandfather of James (Angela), Amanda, Mark, Carrie (John), Erin, Kyle, Kellie (Jeff), Justin (Josh) and Taylor (Joseph); adored great grandfather of Bella, Diego, Noah, Ava, Kayla, Sincere, Jada, Savana, Colin, Tristan, Skylar, Lucas, Grace, Hanna, Aubrie, Landyn, Carson, Brody, Caroline, Chevy and Autumn; dear brother of Roy (Delores), Betty (Jerry) Routen and the late Earl Jr., Gerry and Joann.

Visitation will be held at Faulmann & Walsh Golden Rule Funeral Home, 32814 Utica Road, Fraser, on Thursday from 2pm - 8pm and Friday from 10am until the time of funeral at 11am. Share memories at www.faulmannwalsh.com

I just learned today of Mr. Elzermanā€™s passing. I worked for him for 10 years at Hilton Hotels. He was the best boss and taught me everything I know about accounting. I have thought of him often over the past years. My condolences to his family.
