Don had a sense of humor and he enjoyed going to antique tractor shows, building and remodeling homes, and hand carving canes. He was always tinkering with something in his shop.
Don is survived by his wife of 61 years, Bonnie Nash Davis. They had four children, Donna Malone (Jon), Roberta Mannon (Mark), Debbie Nordskog (Richard), and Rex Davis (Yen Mei), 9 grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren.
