Don was raised in the quaint town of Belchertown, Massachusetts. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved nature and all animals.
He spent countless hours hiking, canoeing, camping, fishing and hunting in Western Massachusetts.
A sheet metal mechanic by trade he was also a talented carpenter and wood carver who created exceptional one-of-a-kind pieces.
He had a super fun sense of humor and a gentle caring heart for his wife and family. He was an incredible father and a patient teacher of his crafts. He was easy going and fun. A good man who loved pig roasts, a good laugh, his dog, and the regulars at the Grapevine Grill.

Our family truly wants to thank the Belchertown community for supporting my father during the latter stages of this debilitating disease. It was humbling to find out how many of the community looked after him when things got confusing for him. We are forever grateful for your kindness. #BelchertownProud
