Upon retirement Don did not slow down, he continued as a machinist for several years in his machine shop at his home. He was a perfectionist and took pride in his work.

Don loved the Lord, reading and studying the Bible. He was known for his dry sense of humor and loved teasing the grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. He enjoyed growing a garden, always giving away more than he kept for himself. He loved visits from his children and grandchildren, never missing an opportunity to show them his large garden every summer and helping harvest his produce. He loved all animals, especially dogs, cats, and horses. He would give you the shirt off his back and expect nothing in return and always offering to lend a hand whenever needed. He had a big heart and his love and compassion for his family and friends always shined through.

Don will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
