Born in Boston and raised in Milton, MA, he attended Cathedral High School in Boston. He earned his own way to graduate from Boston College in 1959 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, where he also played on the Boston College Men’s Ice Hockey Team under the direction of Coach Snooks Kelly.  He went on to graduate from a two year program at the Boston Architectural Center, concentrating on his architectural talents which became the foundation for his career in the real estate development and construction industry.

Donald married his wife, Sally Ann Oldfield, also a Milton resident, in 1960 and together they raised four children.  His greatest strength was his unwavering love and admiration for his family.  He took great care of his family and taught his children by example to be respectful, hardworking and have an entrepreneurial spirit.

Donald was a gentleman of the first order, always smiling and emanating a respectful and positive demeanor to all that crossed his path.  His positive outlook on life even in adverse situations was admirable.  He was most generous in assisting other people in times of need.  He had the ability to solve problems, find solutions and lead others.

Through the many places he lived and his interests, Donald collected wonderful and sincere friends.  He had a love for his alma mater, Boston College, for which he served on the Real Estate Council for many years and provided his continuous generosity.

Donald enjoyed golf, fishing, boating, coaching, spectating at his grandchildren’s events, architectural drawing and home improvement projects of all sorts – whether for himself or others.  He was a member of Kensington Golf Club in Naples, FL and the Pine Hills Golf Club in Plymouth, MA.
