Donald lived in the Augusta area his entire life, but lived in Manchester more than 20 years. He worked different positions for the State of Maine over several years, retiring disabled, as a maintenance mechanic in 2004. His family and home were his world. He spent hours in his garage tinkering. No matter how much of a struggle, you would find him working on Travis', Ean's and even their friends' dirt bikes. He took great pride in fixing what others couldn't. Donald put on mile after mile transporting kids, often going out of his way to bring someone home. He enjoyed gardening and had an especially "green thumb". Family time was spent at the hockey rink or the race track, until he was no longer able. Donald was a devoted, loving husband and best friend, father and grandfather. He will be sadly missed forever.
