He became a Volunteer with the Wartburg Volunteer Fire Department. He served on the E-911 board. He was an EMT-IV with the Ambulance Service. He received the Floyd E. Freytag Lifetime Achievement Award of 2007 around the same time he was honored with The Region EMT-IV of the year award. “Daddy Don” or “Papaw Don” loved the work and the ones he worked with.
