Don was a longtime resident of Carbon County where he was a Lieutenant with the Civil Air Patrol. He worked for Utah Power and Light in Price where he retired as a meter reader. Don was a man of many talents who was willing to help anyone in need. For years he worked at the Carbon County School District, JB's of Price and from the specs of paint on his glasses you could tell that he truly loved his painting business.
Don had a wonderful sense of humor and he always enjoyed a good laugh. His greatest enjoyment was his Wendover trips and his daily coffee breaks. He loved to gamble, but his friendships were the greatest jack pots that he ever made. "We love you Dad, rest in peace."
