Donald was a man of God and was devoted to his family. He was present at every softball game, basketball game, concert, cheer camp, recital or horse show.

Donald started his own business in 1977 as the first CPA in Oakville, Missouri. Everyone knew him because Donald did their tax returns. He later expanded to Fick, Eggemeyer & Willamson. He worked doing taxes and accounting for over 50 years. When he semi-retired his focus was on his family and charitable work where his passion to evangelize was able to shine. He was a founding member of the South County Branch of Connecting Businessmen to Christ.

Besides his family his other love was serving God and his church as a Sunday school teacher, bible study leader, treasurer, elder and mentor. He will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
