He was married to Michelle Lawrence in The Oakland, California Temple, June 17th of 1972. Don grew up in New Zealand from when he was a toddler until he was 17, when he moved to California. He served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in Upstate New York. In 1969, Don was drafted into The United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War, where he operated heavy artillery. When he returned from Vietnam, he married his devoted sweetheart, Michelle Lawrence, of Carmel, CA. Don graduated with the charter class from the J. Rueben Clark Law School at BYU in Provo, UT.

Don had different occupations throughout his career; he served as Legal Counsel, Liaison to former U.S. President Ronald Reagan, a professional helicopter and jet pilot, an International Business Consultant, and an entrepreneur. Don loved adventure and international travel. He enjoyed scuba diving, fishing, golf, aviation, and cooking international cuisine for his family and friends. Don had the ambitions of a young man throughout his entire life. Don loved life, had a cheeky sense of humor, and made friends everywhere he went. He was deeply loved by his family and friends, and we are extremely grateful for his service to his country, his family, and to God. He was survived by his loving wife of over 49 years, Michelle Sherer, and their four children- Jason, Jared, Summer, and Shane, and many adorable grandchildren.
