Don was a loving son, brother and friend. He had a zest for life being the shoulder to lean on or defender if needed. He loved his family immensely. He loved every animal he came across (especially reptiles).


He had struggles in life but that didn’t deter him. He had just started classes at MTC and was very proud of his achievements thus far. He was also proud of graduating from Elgin High School in 2013.


His smile always lit up the room. He would greet you with that smile and make sure you received a hug on the way out.


Don was proud of his appearance and always needed to look “Fresh”.


He fell in love instantly with his niece and nephew, Addy and Karson, they meant so much to him. With Addy sharing the same birthday as Don.


He was a clean freak, he went to visit people just so he could clean their house! “OCD”


Don took a lot of business away from Mark the barer in town. Don gave everybody free haircuts “done right”.

He never left without saying “I love you”.
