March 9, 1944 – October 7, 2022
Don was born in Omaha and raised in Lincoln, NE. He attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, where he graduated as an Electric Engineer. Later, Don obtained an MBA from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He worked all his professional career at IBM as Senior Consulting System Engineer and at Mutual of Omaha, one of his main clients.
