Don served in the United States Navy during the Korean War. He was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1 and worked as an electrician for over 30 years. Don loved traveling with his family and had a great love of the outdoors, hunting, boating, freshwater and deep sea fishing. He especially liked taking long walks on the beach with his children. He enjoyed taking care of his yard and cut his own grass well into his eighties. Don was so personable, a quick wit, and always ready with a good joke. We love and will miss him forever.
