Donald Eugene Van Fleet was born August 9, 1916 to Clifford and Ethel Van Fleet. They resided in Mount Vernon through most of his growing up life. Donald married Lucille Green, and settled on Carpenter Drive in Mount Vernon. He worked on the poles for the phone company, he also was a singer and organ player, and played on the radio on occasion. He battled with major back issues after he hit his 40's, and went through multiple surgeries, 9 I believe in total, and he never fully recovered. In 1978, he and Lucille moved to Clearwater Florida, where in 1986 he succumbed to complications due to brain cancer.

He was a quiet man, a good man. They do not make them like him anymore.
