A proud member of the NRA, he thrived in the Up North life style. Along with his dogs, he spent as much time as he could there.

Donald worked for many years as a welder at Troy Design Manufacturing. There, he made many friends and developed a reputation as a hard worker who everyone loved. Making his home in Redford Twp, he was never without a canine companion or a church family, as he was a member of Farmington Hills Church of Christ.
