On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Registered Nurse, loving husband, and father, Donald Ryan Sokoloski of Great Falls, passed away at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, WA with his wife, Vicki by his side.
Donald Ryan was born in San Fernando, CA on March 6, 1957. Don enlisted into the United States Air Force at the age of 17, and was an active duty member for 20 years. After his military career, Donald attended school first in Butte, then moved to Great Falls, and graduated as a registered nurse. His education led him to a 21 year career at Benefis Healthcare.
Don Sokoloski is survived by the love of his life, best friend, soul mate, and wife, Victoria Sokoloski. Don is also survived by his beautiful daughter, Brande (Jesse) Geaudry and many other relatives.
Don had a heart of gold, and a brilliant mind. He was honored to serve our nation in the United States Air Force and the patients at Benefis. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. For those who knew Don, his smile would radiate through a room. His family remembers him as a goofy man, always making jokes, and bringing laughter to any situation.
