He was born March 4th, 1935 in Jennerstown, PA to Ernest and Mary Kathryn. He also graduated from JBJ high school as president of his senior class.

Don and Emily, his wife of 61 years, relocated to Northern Virginia where he proudly served 27 years with the Metropolitan Police Force. After retiring from the Metropolitan Police Department, he continued his passion and accepted a position with the Library of Congress Police Department, serving 16 years. He was so proud to be apart of both departments and loved serving the community.

Retiring once more, he frequently volunteered at Mount Vernon Recreation Center and was also an active member of the Tall Cedars, the Masonic Lodge, and the Lunch Bunch. He also enjoyed traveling, camping and spending time with his family, especially the grandchildren and great grandchildren.
