Don's sister-in-law, Florence Campbell of Hobart, Indiana, and nephews and nieces survive.

Prior to his appointment with the State Board of Accounts, Don spent several years in private accounting including a few years with a CPA firm and also with Jones and Laughlin Steel Corporation. Don was a CPA and was promoted to the main Office of the State Board of Accounts in 1973 because of his knowledge and ability, especially regarding hospital audits for which he was very much respected throughout the State. His supervisory experience within the State Board of Accounts, besides hospitals, included audits of libraries, federal programs, cities, towns and utilities.

A very humble person, Don requested no funeral services of any kind even though he was a dedicated member of Cross of Grace Lutheran Church, New Palestine, faithfully attending Bible class, church for in-person worship services pre Covid-19, and then Zoom worship services during the Pandemic. Accordingly, In lieu of flowers, please make any memorial contributions to the Cross of Grace Lutheran Church, 3519 South 600 West, New Palestine, IN 46163. Daniel F. O’Riley Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
