Born October 7, 1928 on a farm in Bond County, Illinois with his Mom, Mary and Dad, Ernest. He was one of eleven siblings. He passed away February 2, 2020 in St. Louis. He was 91 years young. Growing up, Don worked on his family’s farm where they raised various animals and harvested many crops. Don later enlisted in the United States Army as a Technician Fourth Grade in 1948. Soon after, he attended Seattle University. Don held positions in many different areas, but spent most of his time working in Real Estate. Don’s interests included spending time with his family, traveling to Arizona, watching all sports (he was a huge Cardinals baseball fan), fishing and staying active by walking daily.
