He was the beloved husband of his wife Mary of 66 years, four children William (Marianne), Barbara (Kenneth), James (Lauren), Patricia (Dennis Murphy) and four grandchildren, Thomas (Erin), Kaitlin, Christina and Douglas (Courtney).

He joined the Army during the Korean War. Don was a custom carpet salesman for V'Soske Lord & Adams in NYC. Retired in 1993, he enjoyed traveling and dining out. He was an avid animal lover, die hard Giants football fan, loved boating and spending time with his family at the Jersey seashore.
