A graduate of St. Edward High School, he was always an avid Eagle. He continued his education at Cleveland State University before beginning a long career in sales. He was a longtime sales representative for several local companies and for several years he ran his own business working with manufacturers representing several brands. Changing with the times, he started in railroad equipment sales and grew into selling automation components and robotics.

An avid sports fan, he enjoyed playing racquetball in several leagues. Don was a devotee of all Cleveland sports – especially the Browns and the Cavs – where he was a season ticket holder for decades. The summers were reserved for his true passion – boating. He was a member of the Cleveland Yachting Club for 41 years and had some of his best memories there on his Sea Rays and with his family and friends.

Later in life his true joy was being an enthusiastic grandfather to his three granddaughters. They were the joy in his life.
