Donald started working as a carpenter and farmer, then in 1962 began his career as a grain buyer. He ended up buying grain for the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool in Paddockwood, Lepine, Calder and finally retiring in Bredenbury in 1992. He was proud of being an elevator agent, but always maintained his love for his original occupation as a carpenter, building all variety of items. Donald quit school prior to high school as there was a need to work and make money, but he was very proud of getting his grade 12 equivalency later in life. Prior to getting married he played guitar in a local band. They played dances and weddings, which were often three day affairs where the homebrew flowed freely. Donald married Phyllis Margaret McGowan in 1963. They lived and raised their family first in Wakaw, then Calder and finally Bredenbury. Donald was active in the local community as a mayor of Calder, town councillor in Bredenbury as well as being very active in the Lions Club. Upon retiring Donald and Phyllis moved to their cabin at Weyakwin Lake. Spending much time snowmobiling, fishing, willow furniture building and teaching, visiting with neighbours, as well as various projects improving the cabin. The true joy of his life was the time spent with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who he loved seeing, playing with, and watching grow up.
