Don grew up in Danville, graduating from Danville High School, where he was a childhood friend of Dick Van Dyke. A highly decorated World War II Coast Guard veteran, Don served in the Merchant Marine seeing considerable action. He was “in the water” twice when ships he was aboard were sunk by enemy fire. Don was also a retiree from the railroad with nearly 40 years of service. He was a member of LeRoy Christian Church, the area Christian Men’s Fellowship and American Legion Post 79, LeRoy.

Don was an active Christian and a dedicated servant of the Lord Jesus Christ until the very end. He fought the good fight and he finished the course.
