Donald was born on February 16, 1934, in Ozark, Franklin Co, AR. During High School, he worked at the Hunters Horn as a print press man publishing the Sand Springs newspaper. After graduating from Charles Page H.S. in 1952, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. He served as a medic at Altus AFB and stationed at an Air Force Base in Spain.
After Don’s service he attended Oklahoma State University (OSU), School of Business, graduating in 1961. While attending OSU, Don met his future wife, Ilaine Fox, and they married in 1960.

Don and his family were very active members of the Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church in Dallas for many years.
