Don attended school at District 56 Rural School and then went on to high school at Chase County High School. Don was united in marriage to Pauline Ione Harvey on June 23, 1953, in Champion, Nebraska. The couple made Imperial home; they lived in a house on East 5th Street until they bought their home at 332 West 9th Street where they lived until 2009 when Don moved to the Imperial Manor Nursing Home. At approximately the age of 18, Don lived in Denver where he attended Bible School. While in Denver he also worked at J.C. Penney.

The couple owned and operated Don’s Farm Service at that location for many years. Don was confirmed and joined the Evangelical United Brethren Church on December 3, 1944. He was a devoted member of the First United Methodist Church, earning a 50 year pin. Don was skilled at woodworking, enjoyed hunting and fishing, and a good game with friends and family; especially cards and horseshoes.
