Donald was born to Fredrick William Bench and Annie Johanna Madsen Bench. He married Annie Elda Colton on 26 May 1928 in Vernal, Uintah, Utah, USA.

Suggestion from Cathy Clark:
Geniel Bench Jones (my grandmother and sister to Donald) always called him Donald. His given name Merle Donald Bench. He didn't like the name Merle, changed the spelling to Merrill and then went by Donald M. Bench.
