Don was born in NYC and raised in Central Pennsylvania. His father was a first generation depression era parent of European immigrants through Ellis Island. He and his family became Christians in the 60s after moving to Pennsylvania. He had a strong upbringing and was raised in an environment with high trust and integrity. Don is often reminded of the example his father would live in small things like giving back money to a cashier who had handed him the wrong change. Don also often tells the story of his mother’s instructions as she sent him off on his first paying job at 16: If you don’t give 110% you’ll be fired!” Not surprisingly he grew to have a tremendous and disciplined work ethic that would serve him well in his career and business dealings.
