Born Feb. 4, 1937, Don came from a family of school teachers. He earned a BS in chemistry and an MS in physics, and for 35 years he taught math, chemistry and physics in several Texas high schools and at Coastal Bend College in Beeville, TX. Students remember him for his witty good humor and intelligence.
Survivors include his wife, Waverly of Shawnee, KS; daughter, Amy of Ventura, CA; brother, Hugh and his wife Hazel, Los Angeles, CA; niece, Sarah of San Antonio, TX; and nephews, David and John and their families of Austin, TX. Between Don and Waverly, they have 7 nephews, 1 niece, 3 great-nieces and 8 great nephews.
A life-long Methodist, Don was a loving and compassionate husband, father, and friend. Since Don and Waverly recently moved from Bandera, TX, a memorial service is planned in Bandera for early spring.
