Don was the founder of The Family Outreach Program, a program offering wide range of services to families who had a family member being held in LA County Jails.

Additionally, Don had been a Chaplain for The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department., a position where he was named Volunteer Of The Year in 2005.

Don was also awarded the Point of Light Award in 2007 by President George W. Bush.

He was an L.A. County Fireman for 25 years, the latter part of that time as the leader of a mountain fire crew.

He was a United States Marine from 1953 to 1955.

Anyone who knew Don well understood the main goal in his life was to lead others to Christ. He viewed any meeting as an opportunity to share his deep personal faith in our Lord.
