Don lived most of his life in the Union City/Hodunk area. He was the founder of American Woodcraft, bringing that business to Union City from Battle Creek in 1962. He had a love of natural foods and healing and founded the Creative Health Institute in 1973.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Robert and Richard.
Don was a member of the Union City Rotary Club. His Christian faith was very important to him, having a small chapel in the Hodunk Mill. Donald took great pride in the mill where he lived and was in the process of restoring.
