It is a somber time as the Fiesta Bowl family has lost one of our beloved Founders, Don Dupont who passed away on June 29. Don brought his passion, expertise and strategic mindset to help set the original course for the Fiesta Bowl and make it into the national treasure we’ve come to know. As treasurer of the founding group, he worked diligently to secure nonprofit status for the Fiesta Bowl, which still defines our organization today. Don was dedicated to service and our thoughts and prayers are with the Dupont family as they endure this difficult time. The Dupont family announced Don’s funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. July 9 at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Dubuque, Iowa. Donations in Don’s memory can be contributed to the Loras Fund or the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque.
