He was a postal clerk st the U.S. Post Office in Hornell for 47 years, retiring in 1960. He was very active in the Evening Star Lodge and Grand F&AM Lodge in New York State. After retiring he and Bernice volunteered at Bethesda Hospital, even serving the week before his death at age 91. He was an elder and Sunday School teacher at Almond Union of Churches, and also active in the Almond Historical Society. Donald was remembered for his story-telling, especially "Uncle Josh" recitations. His mind and body were keen and functioning right up until his sudden death. He and Bernice spent winters in Lake Worth,Florida until 1981 and then enjoyed retirement in their little house on Main St.,Almond, next to their daughter, Donna, and family. He was the beloved father of five children, and his passing left a big hole in the lives of his family, including his many nieces and nephews who also loved him.
