He was passionate about making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and went above and beyond to provide support, care, and compassion. Additionally, he served as a coach for Little League Baseball in both Coleman and Andrews, nurturing young talent and teaching invaluable life lessons. Donald married Linda Lawrence on June 3, 1962, and they celebrated 61 years of marriage.
