Donald D. Masters, 71 was born on June 22, 1935, to Trula LindleyMasters and Chester Masters in Greenfield, Missouri. He passed away November 13, 2006. After graduating from High School, He started his career operating heavy equipment. Donald was drafted into the US Army in 1958. He did his basic training in Fort Carson, Colorado. He was then recruited into the Honor Guard where he served the rest of his service duty walking the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, at Arlington, Virginia. When he got out of the service, he continued to perfect his skills operating heavy equipment, working out of the Operating Engineers Local # 9 all over Colorado. Don and Jeannie Sanchez were married in March of 1973., The energy boom in Wyoming in 1976 inspired him to move there. He and Jeannie then invited newlyweds Andamo and Linda along with baby little Andamo to come and join them there. They also invited Lewis and Sedonia along with little Lewis to come and join them in Casper, Wyoming. In the mid 80's they left Wyoming to go back to Colorado to work. Jeannie came home to New Mexico and Don continued to pursue his craft in California, and Colorado. He retired in 2000, and came home to the CerroQuesta Area, to live permanently, a place, which he dearly loved. He was very fond of saying "This place was just as beautiful as Colorado, but more affordable". When his sister-in-law Yolanda and her family moved to Cerro, he became very involved in the lives of her boys which he came to love and claim as his own. Juaquin, Richard and Miguel were the pride of his life. Don came to be loved, and respected for his gregarious attitudes, the love of his extended family and community, his loyalty to the Denver Broncos. He used to tell Jeannie that he sure enjoyed riding on her coat tails, never fully realizing how many lives he touched on his own.
