He taught computers at Ashland College and helped numerous small businesses with their bookkeeping. Don was a founding member of the Crest Investors.

Don was a fan of The Ohio State Buckeye’s, holding season tickets and attending two Rose Bowls. Don and Jane enjoyed traveling and going on numerous cruises.
