Don was deeply loved by his family. Don worked alongside his best friend and brother in law Don Webber as the VP of Donald Webber Mortgage Co. for many years. He was a former Loan Officer at American Community Bank, a former Trustee and current member of the Elks in Highland, IN, a former Dyer Police Commissioner, Coach and member of Dyer Little League, longtime member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Dyer, IN as well as involvement in youth athletics while his children were growing up, member of St. Mary’s in Griffith, IN and was one of a duo known as the Dancing Don’s in his early teens. He was an avid Cubs fan and got to see them win a World Series.
Don enjoyed life to the fullest and loved to make everyone laugh. He loved his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He loved his time spent at his lake house in Monticello with all his family and friends. He enjoyed relaxing there while drinking his martini, later to be his nightly Honey Bourbon. Everyone was always welcome at the lake and it was always a full house.
Don was the most loving and caring person to everyone who knew him, but most of all he was a devoted husband who loved his wife Ruthann more than anything. They are together once again forever.
