He came back to the farm in the spring of 1949, and met and married Connie FEEBACK on August 27 of that year. Five children, Chris, Jake, Willis, Candy and Kathy remember their dad as a loving but strict disciplinarian. Don loved livestock, which over the years included hogs, dairy cattle, and in the later years, beef cattle and he was very proud of them. He put the needs of his family and livestock above his own.
