Friends and family were most important to him. He loved being a part of the many interests and activities his daughters and grandchildren participated in.
Don had a gift for mentoring and encouraging others. He was a man of his word, spoke with candor, but most importantly – always cared.
Don worked 30 years for IBM. He was a member of Hope Lutheran Church in The Villages. He loved golf, Mahjongg, cards, his Mets and Buffalo Bills. He enjoyed his life in The Villages for 21 years, an active, caring, FUN place - the perfect place for Don!
