He was preceded in death by his brother Frank.

Don spent 30 as a Mechanical Engineer for General Motors, Saginaw Steering Gear and Delphi. He transferred from Midland, Michigan to Decatur, Alabama to help startup of the Saginaw Steering Gear plant there. He graduated from Western Michigan University.

Don absolutely loved to fish, his favorite hobby. He leaves many friends at River Club of Martin County in Jensen Beach, Florida. There are also so many friends at Smith Lake, Alabama, his favorite fishing spot. His wife, Judy, wants to thank everyone for all of the support and encouragement she has received from friends and family through these difficult years.

There will not be a service for Don and he will be cremated. Don would want you to go fishing and drink a beer and remember him in that way.
