Don was an avid reader and had a great knowledge of the history of World War II, Theodore Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy. He also loved older model cars and would strike up a conversation with anyone interested in listening. He dearly loved his grandchildren and spent many hours playing on the floor right along with them. Upon moving to Tennessee, he remained an avid Steelers and Penguins fan.
He was a member of Crosspoint Church. He loved his church and church family as well as his dearest friends Dr. Timothy and Susan Slomer and his beloved dog Sammy.
Memorial services will be conducted 2:00 pm Thursday, April 4, 2019 at Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Greg Doebler officiating. The family will receive friends from 1:30-2:00 pm Thursday prior to the service.
