They started their family in 1970 when Shelly was born, Robin was born in 1972, and Shane, their baby boy, in 1974. He worked in finance and banking for over 20 years before God paved the way for him to enter the building industry, where he worked for the next 35 years with his son, Shane. Don loved the outdoors. He loved hunting and fishing with his son and grandsons and enjoyed planting his garden yearly. What meant most to him was sharing his passions and sharing Jesus with those he loved.
