His daughter, Carla, had also been with him daily for the last five weeks of his life. Don was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He was an incredibly compassionate, gentle, conscious and enlightened human being who loved his children, his family, and all beings in nature. Don was born in Santa Cruz, California and grew up in Watsonville, California. He enjoyed the outdoors as a child, spending time fishing on Elkhorn Slough and Monterey Bay. He was able to overcome childhood adversity in health and family circumstances to become a success in school, career, and family life. After completing high school at age 16, he gained early admission to UC Berkeley earning a degree in Electronic Engineering. He worked as an engineer for various companies, including the UC Berkeley Radiation Laboratory. He also participated in a research exchange program with the Polytechnic University in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he and his family lived for three years. He later worked for private corporations in the East Bay Area designing and building machines that make computer chips. Don has always enjoyed outdoor activities including hiking, camping, backpacking, fishing and tennis. He loved going deep into nature and the wildness areas of California. When his children were younger, he took them camping, hiking, fishing and backpacking in Yosemite every summer and often came to camp on the Redwood Coast at Prairie Creek and Patrick's Point state parks. Later he took up canoeing and sea kayaking. He liked canoeing north Coast Rivers. He enjoyed kayaking and bird watching on Elkhorn Slough, Monterey Bay, and the waters around Humboldt County. He especially enjoyed canoe and kayak camping, and took many long trips to remote areas kayaking to different campsites from day to day, in the far north of Canada and arctic areas. He often combined bird watching and photography with his water activities. He traveled to Antarctica, Australia and the Galapagos to see and photograph the wildlife. He was passionate about preserving the environment, and he was an advocate for public transportation and less reliance on the automobile. The mountains, woods and water were his sanctuaries and he always worked toward making this a better world, by being present and accepting of all people and supporting civil rights, free speech, and environmental causes. He was a member of the Nature Conservancy and the Audubon Society and participated in the local Godwit Days Festival as well as Relay for Life.
