He completed his undergraduate work in Engineering at Clemson and his Masters and PhD in Transportation Engineering at Texas A&M. For over 42 years, Don was a highly respected leader in highway planning and design and traffic engineering. He was a great mentor to many in the industry and made a huge contribution to the world of transportation in particular to high occupancy vehicle facilities. He had a lifelong love of woodworking and leaves his family and friends with many of his beautiful creations. Beloved husband, father and grandfather, he is survived by his wife Joanna, his children Chris (Michelle), David (Brooke), Diana (Brian), his grandchildren Josh, Jordan, Donovan and Charli, and his dog, Margo.
