Don was born Aug. 5, 1939 in Brewster to Donald and Margaret (Baxter) Wilkinson. He graduated from Brewster High School in 1957. On Aug. 9, 1975, he married the former Sheila (Sue) Susan Vitatoe in Akron. Don owned Edinborough Financial Services for nearly 45 years. He recently celebrated 50 years as a Mason. He enjoyed golf, playing euchre with friends, and spending time with family. He often said that nothing is more important than family. A sharp sense of humor was his defining personality trait.
Don is survived by his wife, Sue; and sons, Scott (Kristy) of Canton; Donny of Columbus; and Craig of Massillon. He is also survived by two grandchildren, Clark and Liam. He was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Margaret; brother William; and a sister, Elizabeth.
The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the Mercy Hospice Center for their support during his final days. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mercy Medical Center Hospice.
