Don was a 1957 graduate of Hastings High School. His ability as a catcher on the American Legion baseball team meant a lot to him. He was aware of the fact that he turned 85 in January in spite of memory issues. Those issues worsened soon after.

Don was preceded in death by his parents; older sister, Judy Kramer; and numerous others.
