Those left to carry on his memory are: his wife of 58 years, Edie, daughter, Becky and her husband Chris Havel, daughter-in-law, Abi, and grandchildren, Dillon, Danika, and Deegan. He was preceded in death by his parents, aunt and uncle, and his son, Andy. After graduating from IC City High, Don served in the Navy and was stationed in Japan. He had many good memories of that country and its people. After graduating from the U of I with a major in art, he continued working at the University of Iowa Photographic Service until he retired as Manager in 1996. He made friends easily and kept them long. He especially enjoyed his time at George’s with all the rest of the “regulars.” An informal gathering time for family and friends will be held from 4-6 pm, Wednesday, June 1, 2022, at Gay and Ciha Funeral and Cremation Service.
