Raised in a Christian family in southern California, Don met my wife Charlotte of 50 years in Church as a teen.  Don achieved a Bachelors Degree in Marketing followed years later with an MBA. 

A career in manufacturing management led his family through many moves across the US culminating in his final role as Vice President and General Manager of a building materials company in San Antonio, Texas.

Don retired in 2013 and relocated to Las Vegas to be close to his family.

Through the years he’s served in volunteer roles with his church including leadership roles and advisory teams.  In Las Vegas Don has served at The Crossing Church in numerous support roles and leads a ministry providing home repairs for widows and single moms.

In 2015 & 2019, Don traveled on multiple Mission Trips including Peru.  He has supported the mission financially and with annual trips to Huanchaco and Trujillo in support of Iliana and Hope For Youth in Peru.
