He attended Streator grade schools and graduated from Streator High School. Don was formerly employed at several factories throughout Streator and retired as custodian for the Streator District 44 schools for Centennial and Kimes schools.

Don had planned for his retirement to read all the John Wayne books and listen to his collection of music that he has collected over the years.  Due to health issues his plans changed to watching and enjoying what nature provide for him.  The birds at the bird bath, the number of deer’s that would visit him in meadow behind his house, the momma fox and her babies.  He was a survivor of breast cancer. The family would like to give a special “Thank You” to Dr. Zafar and staff and the Flanagan Rehab.
