Don was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. He enjoyed being outdoors, whether it was working in his backyard, washing and waxing cars, going for a roll in the Metroparks, or taking long drives around country roads. Don was very proud of the accomplishments of his children. He loved to hear about his grandsons' activities, sporting events, and school accomplishments. His wife Carmen was his rock and partner in all the hills and valleys of his life. Don never met a stranger and his presence will be greatly missed by his family.
Family and Friends are invited to gather for a Celebration of Don's Life 1 pm, Saturday, April 30 at Christ United Church, 23114 West Road, Olmsted Falls, OH 44138, followed by Visitation and Luncheon in the Church Fellowship Hall.
