Donald Albert Bremer was born in June of 1934 on the family farm northeast of Moville, Iowa, the son of Edmund and Cora (Riser) Bremer. 

He attended country school and graduated from Moville High School in 1951. Following high school, he helped his family on the farm.

He was drafted into the United States Army on January 23, 1957. He was honorably discharged on October 24, 1957. 

Following his service, he returned to Moville to farm. Don also began raising turkeys near Moville. After retiring from farming, Don moved to Sioux City and established Sioux City Tarp in 1974. He’s been an innovator in the tarp business for over 40 years.  

He was united in marriage to Susan Mossberg on May 8, 1975.

Don’s passion for farming returned to him in 2010 when his family purchased his grandmother’s homestead near Moville. They began farming again and feeding cattle. Don enjoyed watching the market and buying and selling cattle.
