Humbly and proudly serving his country in the 88th Infantry Division during WWII, for which he received the Purple Heart, Donald gave of himself to honor the ideals of his country.
Donald also believed in the ideals of family - support, love & laughter - and in this way, his memory will forever live on in the hearts, minds and daily lives of those he loved.
