Don loved to travel and went coast to coast as well as north to south. He loved country music, family, and down home cooking. You could often find him stopping to talk to a friend, old or new, young or old; he did not know a stranger. He was always busy tinkering with one thing or another for himself and whoever needed help. He was our on call go to guy and fixed many bicycles for his grandchildren. Don was instrumental in the development of the Volunteer Sheriffs in Charlotte Co., Florida, and loved to escort local ball teams on trips for their games. The kids loved him and he had a blast.
Don worked as a maintenance engineer and supervisor for Charlotte Co. Florida Sherriff’s Dept., Medical Center Hospital, and St. Joseph’s Hospital all in Port Charlotte-Punta Gorda, Florida, his home for 50 years.
After Hurricane Charlie, Don and Marie moved to Dadeville, Alabama, retired and enjoyed each other and their family and friends.
