Don graduated from Kingston High School in 1948 and immediately enlisted in the US Navy where he proudly served his country for four years, achieving the rank of Engineer 1st class. After he was honorably discharged in June 1952, he returned to Kingston, married Rosemarie and started his career with Central Hudson Gas and Electric. He retired from there as an Estimator 1st Class in April 1991 with nearly forty years of service to the company. Don and Rosemarie were active members along with their daughters in their church; The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Kingston. He served on the church council for many years and when he moved to Murrells Inlet in his retirement, he became an active member of Shepherd of the Sea Lutheran Church in Garden City.

He passed peacefully in their home on Saturday, October 2. Plans include services in New York in the Spring of 2022, where Don and Rosemarie will be interred together with their son Donald.
