Don was born on a farm south of Inola, Oklahoma, and attended Inola public school through seventh grade when the family moved to Tulsa. Don attended Corn Bible Academy from 1956 to 1959. While there he met Martha Ann Pauls. They dated in high school and just a couple of years later they married on August 5, 1961 in Corn, Oklahoma. Following high school, Don started working for Scott Rice, an office and furniture supply company in Tulsa. He started as a delivery boy in the fall of 1959. For 47 years Don worked for Scott Rice. He made deliveries, then he was a salesman, sales manager, and ultimately he managed the warehouse and became Director of Operations. Don and Martha had three children. Teresa Ann was born in 1963, Larry Don in 1967, and Patricia Lynn in 1970. After Don retired in 2006, he and Martha drove everywhere.
