He retired after he finished the last of 37 years of teaching.
He lives with his wife Catherine in their cabin that they built for themselves in Sandpiper Beach.
Don sculpts and photographs and Catherine writes and pursues Social Justice.
Don feels strongly that form in sculpture speaks of the values and intuitive spiritual world of all people. Each piece of sculpture is accompanied with a short piece of prose explaining its spiritual message.
