survived by extended family members and many friends. Donald proudly served in the
U.S. Navy on several Navy destroyer ships in Normandy and Okinawa during WWII. He
worked at Monsanto for 40 years before retiring. Donald enjoyed many things in life,
and most importantly his family. One of Donald’s greatest joys was to play the bagpipes
in many parades, weddings, funerals, and events. He was the pipe major for the
Springfield Kiltie band at the John Boyle Riley Club for many years and also played for
the Quaboag Highlanders. He also taught many students to play the pipes. Donald
loved to listen to music of many genres and especially enjoyed jazz and big bands. He
had a genuine love of antique cars and enjoyed taking his family on many rides over the
years. Donald was an avid golf and soccer fan and enjoyed watching tournaments with
his son-in-law Gary. Donald enjoyed spending time with his family and neighborhood
friends swimming in his pool, trips to Riverside Park, and many other fun times had with
his daughters and their friends. He loved all animals and took in many strays over the
years. Donald was a good friend to many that knew him and will be missed by all.
At Donald’s request, funeral services will be handled by Ludlow Funeral Home and held
privately by his family and burial will be at the Agawam Veterans Cemetery at a later
date. In Lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Wounded Warrior
Project and Dakin Humane Society
Donald’s family would like to thank the entire Baystate Hospice staff for their kind and
loving care and support during the last few weeks. Much thanks to the Department of
