Don was born in Miles City, Montana. Growing up, he moved around the country a lot due to his father’s career, but returned to Miles City for his senior year. After graduation, he immediately enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard, where he served for 25 years from Seattle to Miami. He retired in 2018. After retirement he relocated back to Montana because it is, and has always been, home (because let’s face it, it IS the last best place)!
Don enjoys spending time with family, completing home improvement projects, wood working, golfing, camping, fishing and playing with toys on wheels! He’s also been known to just completely waste an afternoon on the porch BBQing, listening to music and sipping libations.
