Donald grew up surrounded by his Croatian culture. He was active in church clubs at St. Paul's Croatian Church and enjoyed bowling and golf. Don helped for 60+ years with fundraising for St. Paul's Youth Group. He dedicated 30 years of volunteer service at St. Noel Catholic Parish in Willoughby Hills. Faith, Family and Friends were always prominent in his life. He shared his passion for gardening, especially garlic with anyone he met. Don's other interests were traveling the world, and having fun at the casinos now and then. He lived a full life. He felt blessed to reach the age of 90 and loved his birthday celebration this past July. He will be so greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
