Raised in Fort Worth, Don graduated from Amon Carter Riverside High School, and was an avid Alumnus of Texas A&M University, Class of 1953.
Don had a 34-year career with Texas Electric Service Company, later renamed Texas Utilities, serving in West Texas, including Colorado City and Big Spring. After time in West Texas, Don worked many years in Washington D.C. as a Senior Executive, advocating for TXU in the design, development and production of efficient electrical power.
His greatest love was his family and being involved in community affairs. His passions included bird hunting, woodworking and flying, which he shared with many family and friends. He remained constantly aware of peoples' needs. Of multiple community involvements, Don had a special heart for children and was a strong supporter of Denton County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and Montague County Child Welfare Board.
He also gave his time with his dear friend Clint Brown, as a pilot for Angel Flights, transporting patients to distant doctor appointments.
Family gratefully thanks Vitas Hospice and its' dedicated team of caregivers. The family also extends gratitude for the loving care given by Dr. James Strauss and the staff at Texas Oncology-Dallas.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to CASA of Denton County, 614 N. Bell Ave., Denton, TX 76201; OR Montague County Welfare Board, P.O. Box 343, Montague, TX 76251.
