In 1960, upon purchasing the Phelps house in Crown Point, he became assistant chief of the A.E. Phelps Engine Company, with various employment opportunities as a member of the International Union of Operating Engineer Local 106 Albany N.Y. Also, Don joined the F&AM Rescue Lodge 772, Crown Point, and was a member of the Masonic Brotherhood for 50+ years. In 1963, Don moved to Hudson Falls, having joined the UA Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 773 of Glens Falls, remaining a member for 50+ years.

Don was very active in Hudson Falls Little League as a coach. While residing in Hudson Falls, he was nicknamed the "Mayor of Pearl Street."

In 1998, Don and Florence retired to Ormond Beach, Fla., enjoying the beach, gardening, and many visitor attractions, until an opportunity arose to live next to their daughter, Donna, in Katy, Texas, in 2006. Grandpa loved spending time with his grandsons and attending their Little League games.
