Don was a member in Sparks and High Voltage Retirement groups. Don had great love for his family and enjoyed going to Colorado to visit Susan, his two grandsons and his two great-grandchildren. He went white-water rafting, visited various gem shows, played games and enjoyed numerous Thanksgiving get-togethers. Don enjoyed visiting Diane in Kansas, where they often drove through the Flint Hills Prairie and even went on a 2-day covered wagon trip. He was so proud to go see his granddaughter Rose perform in her dance competitions.
