He and his wife Janet spent their working years in California, but kept returning to Utah for their outdoor vacations. Finally, in 1999, they moved to La Sal to be closer to the area they had grown to love.
Don was born in La Mesa, Calif., Feb. 11, 1950, and spent a lot of time sailing with his dad off the coast of Del Mar. Don and Janet were married Aug. 25, 1979, and both were employed in the pharmaceutical industry. After they moved to La Sal, Don continued in the business as a consultant until he retired.
Don leaves his wife, Janet, and brother, Michael, of Brownsville, Texas.
A memorial service will be held at a later date in California.
