Donald Young Bear, Jr., age 48 of Wahpeton, ND, died in the comfort of his home, under the care of his amazing staff at Red River Human Services Foundation and CHI Hospice of Breckenridge.
Donald was born August 17th, 1972, in Fort Yates, North Dakota to Marlene Granbois and Donald Young Bear Sr. After several medical placements at a young age, Donald moved to Grafton and was cared for at the Life Skills and Transition Center long term, starting in 1983. The staff at LSTC became like family to Donald and he met many friends while living there. He enjoyed it when people would joke around with him and would show his approval with a smile that could light up a room. He took much pride in being a part of charitable events and activities and annually would take part in collecting school supply donations for Grafton Public Schools. In February of 2020 Donald had the opportunity to move to a group home with RRHSF in Wahpeton. Although his time with them was short, he made a great impact on those who knew him.
