During his life Don spent most of his career working at Safeway where he greeted customers with a smile that could light up a room.
Don was affectionately known by his family as “Dad” or “Papa”. Anyone who spent any time with Papa loved him. He was a hero in his family for the unconditional love he showed and the hope in Jesus he pursued. His witty sarcasm and creative songs brought joy to everyone around him. Papa enjoyed long car rides and travel of any kind. He also liked western movies, especially those featuring John Wayne.
