He met and married the love of his life Genevieve on November 6th 1945. After a few years they decided to move to the city where they had two children. Stan, 66 and Delieth, 62. Sadly on April 10th, 1964 she got sick and went home to heaven leaving him here to raise two small children.

Don, went through life working and raising his kids for three years until he met Alice Martin. They got married on December 1, 1968. He worked as a meat packer for 29 years until they closed down the plant. He then found a job at Rose Medical Center as maintenance. Where he worked until he had to have open heart surgery.

Don, loved to travel and did a lot of it through the years. He loved to see new things. Everyone that he meet was an instant friend. To him there was no such word as stranger. He treated everyone equally. His smile was contagious. He was always happy go lucky.
