Donald worked with his boys at Maas Builders.  He especially enjoyed making picture frames.   Donald also enjoyed gardening, bowling, hunting and fishing.  He and his wife delighted in their gambling trips together, but most of all, Donald loved spending time with family, especially his grandkids and his dog Brutus.  He also enjoyed being able to help other people.  One of Donald’s greatest prides was admiring his kids and what they had accomplished in life.
