Don was an avid outdoorsman and loved hunting, fishing, camping, and 4-wheeling. He loved to share those passions with anyone he met. You could often find Don with his constant companion Ruger and his good friend Alan Maxwell driving around our desert exploring. Don tumed to woodworking after his retirement from masonry and made many beautiful treasures for Lorrie and their grandchildren.
There will be no service at this time per Don's request. Cremation and spreading of ashes at his favorite hunting spot will take place later this summer.
