Born near Hythe, Alberta on May 16, 1928, Don was the oldest of five children. He completed a course from the Radio College of Canada, sparking a lifelong interest in radios and electronics. His first job was working at a radio station in Dawson Creek, which was built with war surplus equipment. It was here that Don was discovered by Imperial Oil, which started a successful lifelong career with the company. He travelled extensively in the
Canadian Arctic and Russia working on electronic equipment, conducting studies and research. While working in the Peace River area, Don helped develop a radio transmitter system which resulted in the first commercial use of a transistor.
Don was an avid HAM radio enthusiast and member for the Calgary Amateur Radio Association, he collected and repaired antique radios. He also enjoyed photography and was a life member of the Masonic Lodge.
Don donated his extensive radio collection to the Grande Prairie Museum in 2006.
