He married Darlene Lushina, his high school sweetheart.  Relocating to Villa Park their 60-year marriage resulted in five children, eleven grand children and three great grandchildren. Don enjoyed his design and sales career in material handling that led to projects on four continents in port cites and factories.  His enjoyment of sports led to many outings watching his family play in the Chicago area and college football in Missouri.  He often golfed at Mill Creek in Geneva with his family and loved outfitting his grandchildren with clubs he carefully refurbished.  Don enjoyed a koi fish pond in a beautiful garden he and Darlene built together over many years. He will be remembered for his support of higher education, athletic ability, handyman skills, and devotion to his family.
