Born in Washington, DC in 1947, Don resided in Severn, MD. In 1964 Don joined the USMC and served two tours of duty in Viet Nam. Upon his discharge in 1971 at the rank of sargent (Sarge, as he was known), he and Beverly were married in 1974 and became a beautiful family of 6. Sarge enjoyed his Harley Davidson Trike and rode every chance he had. He was honored to ride with the Nam Knights Immortal 400 chapter. There were many rides to support Police, Firefighters, Military, Rolling Thunder and survivors of lost heroes.

After retiring Don & Bev enjoyed living their dream of traveling in their RV with their companion dogs Misty, Coco Puff and Dixie. They enjoyed many trips to Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, Myrtle Beach and wherever else they set their sights on.
