Donald was born on September 1, 1932 and passed away on Saturday, March 4, 2017.

Donald was a resident of Chicago, Illinois at the time of passing.

He graduated from East High School in 1951, and married his high school sweetheart, Joanne (Burt) Swinson on August 31, 1951.

Funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 10, 2017, in Court Street United Methodist Church, 215 N. Court St. Rockford with Rev. Calvin Culpepper officiating, followed by a private family burial in Arlington Memorial Park. Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. prior to the service in the church. I remember that Don was the first person to arrive for the visitation for Larry's Dad, coming straight from work. Every funeral service is different, just as every individual and family is different.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Court Street United Methodist Church.
