In an instant, Don was tragically taken from us. He was killed in a railway accident on Jan. 9, 2015.
The Guest Book is expired.
His life began Aug. 8, 1960; the first child of James C. and Nancy, he was later joined by a sister, Christi and a brother, Frank.
He graduated from Bozeman Senior High in 1979. After receiving a Naval Scholarship he attended University of Washington for two years. His years spent in Seattle led to his devotion to the Seahawks. While in the Navy ROTC he traveled to the Mediterranean on an aircraft carrier and was blessed in the crowd at the Vatican by the Pope. After those two years he returned to Bozeman and finished his studies and graduated from Montana State with a degree in Computer Science.
In 1985 he made a big move to the San Jose area and began working for Lockheed where he was employed until his death.
In the last 30 years of his life many wonderful things happened but the most wonderful was meeting the love of his life, Emi.
He was a wonderful husband, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. He was loved and will be missed by all who knew him.
Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 11 at 10 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Bozeman. Please join family and friends for a reception after.
