In 1961 Don’s family moved to San Mateo, CA where he graduated from Aragon High School in 1968. Shortly after graduating Don moved to Montana where his sister Diane lived where he became a logger.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, collecting treasures and he could fix just about anything. Don was a true Montana man who loved God, his family and Montana.
He was an active member of the Alberton Community Church and you could find him there every Sunday sitting next to the church ladies.
