Donald James Wentzel aka "Weasel", 62, of Hampton, passed away Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at Franklin General Hospital in Hampton. He was born October 18, 1959, in Austin, Minnesota, to Paul Ray Wentzel and Sharon Lee Belden.
 
Weasel received his GED. He was united in marriage to Billie Thornberry on October 18, 1985, in Clinton, Iowa. He owned and operated Weasel's Den Smoke Shop and also worked construction for a number of years.
 
Weasel was a huge coin and antique collector. He had a big heart and was a giver; helping anyone who needed it. He actually helped many homeless people in the community. Weasel was a straight shooter; he told you like it was, whether you wanted to hear it or not. Weasel was proud of his animals, loved comedy and was an avid Minnesota Vikings fan.
 
Weasel is survived by his wife Billie Wentzel of Hampton; son Eugene Sikora of Ackley; granddaughter Mackenzie Sikora of Austin, Minnesota; brothers David Wentzel of Mason City, Danny (Amy) Wentzel of Austin, Minnesota, Duane (Trish) Wentzel of Virginia, Delmer (Shari) Wentzel of Summerton, Arizona and Douglas (Katrina) Wentzel of Virginia; sister Donna (Paul) Farrell of Austin, Minnesota; really great friends, whom Weasel called brothers, Richard Martin, Harland Huff and Clifford Huff Jr.; honorary grandchildren Arlena Casady, Zander Olmstead, Thomas Winkowitsch, Devin Winkowitsch and Raya Winkowitsch; along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
 
He was preceded in death by his parents Paul and Sharon, brother James Wentzel in infancy, sister Denise Wentzel, aunts Vivian Stoekel, Millie Hedum, Donna Cochran, Viva McGonigle, and Nettie Greenman, uncles Donny Belden, Jesse McGonigle, James Wentzel and Robert Wentzel.
