He was a veteran of the Korean War serving in the US Army as a field telephone wireman. He worked on the family farm and sawmill in Concord Township. He also worked at the Miami County Power Plant from 1960-1973. Most of all he enjoyed his time farming. He could recite the serial number, type of motor and horsepower of every tractor on his farm. Don was quite a story teller with stories of growing up and those he heard from his father. As a young lad, he went to the grain elevator with his dad and listened to the farmers talk about their day. He remembered their stories, as well. Don was a member of the Pleasant Hill United Church of Christ where he attended Bible study and services. He served on the Deacon commitment, operated the sound system, was a bell ringer, and served as trustee. He recorded the services and delivered them to shut-ins.
