November 4, 1951  ~  February 10, 2019


Don graduated from West High School,  He survived cancer many years ago but succumbed to a series of multiple strokes; His beloved wife Marilyn, daughter Andrea and other family members were at his bedside until the end.

Don and Marilyn were together for many years before marrying on June 4, 1988 on Lake Tahoe aboard the sternwheeler the Tahoe Queen. The family loved traveling to Carpenteria every Thanksgiving to come and enjoy Don's feasts. Don was a gourmet chef, rarely using a recipe.  This led him to his career as supervising chef at North Kern State Prison where his calm demeanor made him loved by prisoners and other staff alike.

Don's wife Marilyn passed on December 30, 2019; They are survived by their beloved daughter Andrea and her fiance Preston.  Don is also survived by his two brothers, Bill and Steve

At the families request there will be no service
