Donald Muri, age 73, of Miles City passed away on Sunday, July 26, 2020 at Billings Clinic.
Don was born in Forsyth, Montana on November 29, 1946, the son of Bob and Jean (Lockie) Muri. He grew up in Miles City where he attended school, graduating from Custer County District High School in 1965. He then attended Miles Community College for a year before transferring to Montana State University where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and Accounting. Following college, he returned to Miles City where he worked for the VA Hospital in the accounting department for a few years. In 1970, he met the love of his life & best friend Del Wolfe while dragging main street. They were married on December 27, 1970 in Miles City. Don’s true love was ranching and together they bought and sold different ranches over the years. He was under immense pressure from Del, “The Boss”, to buy the home place on Valley Drive East where they have lived most of their married life.
Don loved to go fishing. He was an avid sports fan and especially loved baseball and enjoyed watching the Yankees during the annual summer baseball trips with Don Youngbauer. He also loved watching the Montana State Bobcats play. Don also enjoyed watching the stock market and Fox News daily and having coffee with his coffee clan. Don’s most treasured times were times spent with his grandkids touring the latest improvements on the place.
