    He married his wife Sandi in 1980 and had two children: Erin and Donnie. He spent his extra time at Priest Lake riding his ATV in the mountains with family and friends. His two grandsons, Maddox and Mason, kept him busy with being their private chauffeur back and forth to school and anywhere else they wanted to go. He also enjoyed watching the Seattle Seahawks and Mariners. 

    He is preceded in death by his son Donnie. 

    He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Sandi; daughter and son-in-law Erin and Randy Taft; two grandsons Maddox and Mason; his four sisters and their spouses; and numerous nieces and nephews. There will be a small graveside service at Holy Cross Cemetery for the family.

Don was a great friend. One of my funniest memories was when Don, John Pence, Vince Fox, and I were cruising Riverside and it was getting late, around 1am, and all we heard from the back seat was "Take me home". But of course we didn't. And we dedicated the song "Take me Home" to Don and laughed about that for years. My thoughts and prayers go out to Sandi and his family. Rest in peace my friend.

Jennie and I went to St. Tomas Moore with Don. Jerry Kendall, Jean Tully (Merkel), Debby Meyer, who has since deceased' all hung out together. A pretty unseperable group. Did I miss anyone? 
One of the things that stick out in my mind is the way he walked with a little hop. Always knew it was him when walking behind him. 
Rest in peace Don. It was so good to see you at the 50 year class reunion. You'll be missed!

Dons passing was a hit to the heart.  For myself as well as many close girlfriends, our hearts go out to Sandi and his family. 
In school we had so much fun hanging out with Don. He was mischievous but had a voice of reason as well. He kept us safe, as a brother would. He listened to our problems, dilemmas, and laughed with us until we couldn't stand, only to be repeated. In our worlds and teenage minds nothing was impossible. We were lucky to have each others backs and our friendships grew, until each of us found our own paths to adulthood. When Don found Sandi he found his world and his future. 
As Jonnie remembered, his walk was special😀 His heart was so good! I'm glad he made it to the 50th even though he wasn't well. He will never be forgotten as an amazing friend❣️ Rest in peace Don🕊️🕊️🕊️
