Born January 21st, 1932. Don grew up in Schuyler NE, working in a greenhouse owned and operated by his father. That experience was formable in his career choice. In 1958, he and his wife Jean opened Younkers Flower shop on 42nd and Center. Several years later, they expanded to the Westroads Mall.

Don always felt blessed by the many people and critters in his life. His spirituality was an inspiration to all those that spent time with him.
Survived by his former wife, Jean Williams, daughters, Debbie Stoney (Dan) and Sherry Jensen (Chris); sons, Randy Williams (Jackie) and Richard “Rick” Williams; numerous nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
