Donald retired from Thatcher’s Glass after 38 years. He then drove a bus for Woodland School. He was a member of the Bridge Street Church of Christ. He had been a member of the Wau-Shee Riders trail club.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Alamae in 2020, after 68 years of marriage; his brothers, Duane Long and Lloyd Long, and his sister, Sharon Bowman and nephew, Christopher Long. He was the last of his wife’s family, having many brothers and sisters-in-law.
