Donald served in the U.S. Army in Korea as a civil engineer. He worked for many years with the Commonwealth of Ma as a bridge engineer and had a surveying partnership.

Donald was known for his love of driving his pontoon boat around Lake Lashaway. He may have been one of the first on the lake with the concept of party boat, using a row boat and outfitting it with lawn chairs.
